An introduction to a fabulous champagne made by Penet-Chardonnet.
GRANDE RESERVE, GRAND CRU, BRUT NATURE
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.
Less than 5000 bottles of this cuvée were produced, and each bottle is numbered.
Grand Reserve perfectly accompanies cod fish or wild smoked salmon.
