Description & Technical Information
-
The fully-owned 6-hectare vineyards stretch along the towns of Verzy and Verzenay, an exceptional Grand Cru area of the “Montagne de Reims” celebrated for its top quality pinot noir grapes. The sustainably grown Pinot Noir (2/3) and Chardonnay (1/3) grapes, used in all the cuvees, are carefully hand-picked at the perfect time during the harvest and rigorously selected, ensuring only the very best grapes are used. This champagne is from all Chardonnay grapes in Verzy Grand Cru, one of the top villages in Champagne.

Made from a special selection of Chardonnay Grand Cru parcels of Verzy and blended with oak-barrel-matured reserve wines, this very fine Champagne represents the essence of the Terroir and perfectly expresses the style: richness, complexity, minerality. Only 1300 bottles produced.

Tasting Note: A bright yellow colour with aromas of ripe citrus and peaches. There is an underlying nuttiness and spicy vanilla oak aromas from the barrel fermentation and with so much fruit the oak although bold seems quite balanced. A vibrant balance of ripe fruits and a slightly creamy texture from barrel fermentation. The layers of complexity last throughout the long lingering finish. A great example of Blanc de Blancs

Expert Reviews
91/100
Antonio Galloni
“Penet's NV Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs Terroir & Sens Grand Cru is tense, powerful and tightly wound. Slate, chalk, lemon confit, chamomile and white flowers, along with a faint veil of reduction, give the wine its distinctive personality. This is an especially powerful, vinous expression of Chardonnay. All the elements are very nicely balanced. This release is 100% 2014 vintage. Disgorged on May 10, 2017. Dosage is 5.6 grams per liter.”

“Based on the 2016 vintage and disgorged in October 2020 with 5.2 grams per liter dosage, the NV Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Terroir & Sens has turned out nicely, wafting from the glass with aromas of confit citrus mingled with hints of almond paste and vanilla pod. Medium to full-bodied, bright and pillowy, with a fleshy core of fruit, racy acids and a chalky finish, it's already drinking well.”
