Champagne Marguet Shaman Brut Grand Cru 2019 750ml
The 2019 edition of Shaman is composed of 87% Pinot Noir and 13% Chardonnay, exclusively from Ambonnay and Bouzy terroirs. All base wines have received the same tender loving care, with movement mainly by gravity and fermentation in barrels, regardless of the origin of the batch. Dosage and chaptalisation are forbidden here, with Benoît wanting to remain loyal to nature’s generosity.
Tasting Notes: The lovely peach-toned colour speaks of the ripe fruit profile. There is a lovely floral and fruity fragrance to it, with aromatic wood and herbs, even a whiff of pepper to the nose. The oak is finely integrated, on both the nose and the palate. The structure is fleshy and firm, with opulent fruity power. Sweetly fruity but bone-dry finish, with a firming touch of ripe phenolics.
Alcohol: 12.5% / Varietals: Pinot Noir, Chardonnay / Origin: France
