Part 3

This is the third introductory video to Penet-Chardonnet Champagne.

An introduction to a fabulous champagne made by Penet-Chardonnet. 


Made from a selection of our best Grand Cru parcels of Verzy, this exceptionally complex, mineral and powerful Champagne was bottled in 2002 and aged on the lees until its disgorgement date, mentioned on the back label.

It leaves a gorgeous hint of green apples in the mouth and a long minerally overtone. Precise and clean on the palate.

Zero dosage.

Less than 5000 bottles of this cuvée were produced, and each bottle is numbered.

Grand Reserve perfectly accompanies cod fish or wild smoked salmon.

The Alexandre Penet range currently comprises:

Extra Brut Cuvée

Extra Brut Cuvée Rosé and

Brut Nature Cuvée Grand Cru

Each champagne has been produced in partnership with the Penet family's most trusted suppliers to the same demanding standards and with the same combination of character, freshness and very low dosage, that discerning champagne lovers have come to expect from the Penet family style.

In announcing the launch of the new range Alexandre Penet commented

“During the past two years we have been very encouraged by the tremendous reception that both the public and professionals have given to our Penet-Chardonnet range. That shows that there is a growing demand for our style of low dosage champagnes that are pure, elegant and true to the terroir.

The Alexandre Penet range will be available is slightly less limited quantities and it's exciting to be able to offer  a much wider audience the chance to discover the same exceptional champagne experience.

The very first opportunity to taste the new range will be on Thursday May 5th at the Q Club in Regent Street, London where Extra Brut Cuvée will be presented by our partners from
My Man In Champagne.

Part 2: Meeting Alexandre from Penet-Chardonnet

Penet-Chardonnet uses what’s called ‘Low-Dosage’. That means that very little sugar has been added so you really get the full flavour of the fruit. ( often Zero Dosage i.e no added sugar at all)
