Penet Chardonnet Terrior & Sens Grand Cru Extra Brut MV

Penet Chardonnet Terrior & Sens Grand Cru Extra Brut MV

100% Chardonnay. The roots of this estate run deep: the Chardonnet family has been living in the village of Verzenay for 400 years, while the Penets have been in Verzy for nearly as long. The estate's current incarnation, however, dates from 2008, when Alexandre Penet took over full-time—since then, he has been attracting increasingly widespread attention for his bold, full-flavored champagnes. The great champagne critic, Peter Liem, called him one to watch, so the hype and eyeballs are definitely on him. Terroir & Sens is his entry-level wine and shows off the characteristic rich, ripe depth of fruit with the firm structure typical of Verzy and Verzenay where the grapes come from, often accenting this with a pronounced salinity or savoriness derived from minerality. This is one of our most exciting finds for Champagne in awhile.

Tasting Notes
"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." - Antonio Galloni
