The Sapience is a remarkable project, bringing together some of the greatest terroirs and vignerons of Champagne. It’s a blend of 50% Chardonnay from David Leclappart in Trépail, 25% Pinot Noir from Benoît Lahaye in Grand Cru Bouzy and 25% Meunier from Georges Laval in Cumières.
a prestige cuvee Champagne from Benoit Marguet (5th generation, estate founded in 1870). Estate is based in grand cru Ambonnay, but this bottling includes 1er Cru fruit as well, so it is labelled with lower designation.
Benoît has changed the direction of the family business, having converted operations to biodynamic viticulture in 2009. He strives relentlessly to nurture energy in all hiscuvéesfollowing the rhythmic cycles of nature, as well as cosmic and lunar cycles. Some of his methods are far from conventional – as are his wines, which are some of the most highly-prized and expressive in the region.
His sensitivities and skill in the vineyards are famous amongst Champagne’svigneroncommunity. Even Krug have employed his talents in farming their Ambonnay Pinot Noir. Hiscuvéesandlieu ditsare both contemporary and evocative, standing as beautiful expressions ofterroir.Timeless, radical and insanely delicious, these wines offer value, purity, and quality.
