Penet-Chardonnet Grand Cru 'Les Fervins' 2009 75cl
This unique cuvee, from winemaker Alexandre Penet is one of the very few Grand Cru Champagnes that are made from a single plot, representing the ultimate achievement of the Penet family's heritage and relentless search for the 'holy grail' of the Terroirs of Verzy and Verzenay, supported by extensive viticultural research conducted more recently.
The wine, made from carefully selected grapes of 'Les Fervins' vineyard, displays very fine, citrusy and nutty notes and is remarkably balanced on the palate.
It is outstandingly long and mineral, true to the character of the chalky soil it stems from.
Thanks to its wonderful balance and mineral character, 'Les Fervins' is ideal as an aperitif and for pairing with such gastronomic dishes as white meat, fish and light cheeses.
