Marguet Ambonnay Blanc, Coteaux Champenois, France 2019
Classified as Coteaux Champenois, Champagne’s still wines have a dedicated Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée (AOC). It can be white (blanc) or red (rouge), and generally constitutes a bottling of single village or vineyard pinot noir, meunier or chardonnay. Benoit Marguet, one of the finest organic growers from Ambonnay in Champagne’s Montagne de Reims & released his first Coteaux Champenois in 2015. The project was an incredible success as this is his current release from 2019. The palate is refreshingly pure and mineral, revealing a direct line to the soil from where it came – chalk!
Soil: Limestone Clay
