The 2010 Sapience, vinified by Champagne Marguet, is a blend of 50% Chardonnay, 33% Pinot Meunier and 17% Pinot Noir. As the dominant varietal, the Chardonnay plays the keyboard of pome and stone fruits, which it emulsifies with the finest lemon oil. Floral notes in the overtone range of chestnut blossom set gossamer accents that are countered beyond the fruit by sublime spice of salty Piedmont hazelnuts. Cut, slightly oxidized red apple, mace and shortbread unite fruit and phenolic in joyful harmony and let expectantly lead the lips to the cup. The Marguet Sapience Premier Cru 2010 has a straw yellow, bright and clear color.
On the nose, the Sapience is carried by the ultra-fine mousseux that as an aromatic super-spreader immediately fully lined the palate with this ambrosial nectar. Energetic and punchy, it has decent thrust on the palate with simultaneous nobility and elegance. It combines the fine fruit with noble contouring tannin and a melange of citrus, yellow stone fruit and dark berry fruits and a stylistically perfectly applied oxidation note. Pure finesse carried by a profound bass that unpacks with immense inner density on the palate like a Win-Zip file. An ambrosial equilibrium of the first order with epic length and miles of cool finish. Hedonists drink it immediately, long-suffering experts in a few years.
