This unique cuvee, one of the very few Grand Cru Champagnes that are made from a single plot, represents 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. Here the Penet family owns a particular plot planted to both Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes and where its family cross – today Penet Chardonnet’s logo, stands. The Champagne that is made exclusively from this parcel contains both grapes, something unique in Champagne for a single vineyard wine.
