Champagne Penet-Chardonnet, Grand Cru Verzy, Grande Montagne de Reims (RM)

    Scala Wine is sole UK importer and seller of this important elite estate which has 6 ha of pure grand cru vineyards in Verzenay and Verzy on the Grande Montagne de Reims.  Alexandre Penet, a highly-qualified oenologue (wine scientist, not simply a winemaker) also buys grapes to make his entry level champagnes as Champagne Alexandre Penet.  All wines here are  small production, mostly grand cru status, either from Verzy alone or a blend of parcels in Verzy and Verzenay.  These are exquisite examples of the super fruit and chalky minerality of the top vineyards of the Grande Montagne near Reims. Quantities are small and we invite you
