Marguet Pere & Fils Sapience Premier Cru Extra-Brut 2009 (For local pickup one day in advance!)

Robert Parker (Wine Advocate) -

"This is the fourth vintage of Benoît Marguet's Sapience, Champagne's first organic prestige cuvée, which he began producing before he took over his family vineyards, using purchased grapes: Bouzy Pinot Noir from Benoît Lahaye, Cumières Pinot Meunier from Vincent Laval and Trépail Chardonnay from David Leclapart. Disgorged in June 2019 without dosage, the 2009 Brut Nature Premier Cru is showing brilliantly, wafting from the glass with a complex bouquet of citrus oil, dried orange peel, white flowers and subtle hints of praline. Full-bodied, layered and textural, it's seamless and complete, with a deep core, ripe but racy acids and a long, intense finish."
