“I think this may well be my favorite example of Benoît Marguet’s Tête de Cuvée of Sapience that he has yet released, or at least, it is the one that is drinking with the most refined generosity out of the blocks. I should note that I missed tasting the 2008 Sapience, which friends have told me has absolutely brilliant potential. In any event, the 2009 is composed of its customary cépages of fifty percent chardonnay and twenty-five percent each of pinot noir and pinot meunier. The bouquet is gorgeous, offering up a deep, complex and very refined blend of white peach, apple, chalky soil tones, patissière, gentle floral tones and a topnote of orange zest. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and seamless, with marvelous depth at the core, great transparency down to the soil, refined mousse and stunning length and grip on the complex, vibrant and laser-like focus. This is a great wine! 2019-2050. 96+.” John Gilman
