Marguet, a new vision of champagne
Benoît Marguet is an atypical but big-hearted winegrower who crafts wines with a lot of serenity and a certain shamanic philosophy. No doubt when you pass the doors of the estate where a graceful buddha statue in the middle of the courtyard welcomes you, that you are surrounded by a plenitude feeling…
Located in the Grand Cru village of Ambonnay, Champagne Marguet is a family estate founded in 1870. Today, Benoît – 5th generation of winegrower – is looking after the 8 hectares of the Domain mainly located on the terroir of Ambonnay
. After taking over the family estate, Benoît decided to undertake big changes in the way to do thing. He converted entirely the 8 hectares to the biodynamic approach with the use of farming employing phytotherapy – infusion and decoction of medicinal plants – and aromatherapy farming since 2009. A philosophy where the well-being of his soil, the natural balance of things and favoring of life are a priority.
