Marguet Père & Fils Extra Brut

A beautifully even assemblage of yellow and red fruits with subtle charcuterie notes of barrel fermentation. The biscuity, ginger complexity and creamy, buttery, silky mouthfeel of long lees age lingers on the finish, softening the tension of the season to make for a gentle and immediately approachable take on 2008. It looked tense and edgy in Ambonnay a year after disgorgement, but six months later in Brisbane, acidity and dosage were already surprisingly harmonised, finishing long and even.
