Variety: Chardonnay and Pinot Noir
Benoit is a 5th generation winemaker turning to very innovative and anything-but-conventional methods at his family domaine. The conversion to organics and biodynamics aside, his vineyard practice employs horses and aromatherapy, and to walk around the cellar you’ll find barrels painted purple and small Buddhas perched as if to watch over the room. It is easy to tell he takes great care in every step of what he does, in hopes, and execution, of finding balance not just in his winemaking, but also in life.
“Les Crayers” means the “big chalk,” openly referring to the hefty presence of chalk in the soil. This wine is aged for four years on the lees. No dosage, or sugar is added making this bone dry and pure. This is the first single vineyard that Marguet began to bottle.
