The origins of Marguet Champagne go back to 1875, when it was founded by Emile Marguet. The house is located in the town of Ambonnay, on the Montagne de Reims, and run by Benoit Bonnerave, a fifth generation member of a local vine-growing family. Grapes are sourced mostly from premier cru and grand cru villages, from both the firm’s vineyards as well as from neighbouring growers.
Benoit Bonnerave is a dynamic owner with a real passion for being as close to nature as possible and his ambition is to work organically throughout. So far, he has made a real name for himself for his outstanding rosés, reflecting the quality of his grand cru holdings in Bouzy and Ambonnay. Some of his chardonnay comes from Trépail, the only premier cru chardonnay vineyard on the Montagne de Reims. The blanc de noirs, produced by Marguet entirely from black grapes is full-bodied and flavoursome and also worth discovering.
