Origin: Champagne, France.
Tasting Note: Introducing a limited release Champagne to toast 175 years of winemaking endeavours. We have re-ignited our love affair with France, a special place for Penfolds, where winemaker Max Schubert was inspired to create Grange. Partnered with Thiénot, a respected player in the world of Champagne, Penfolds instigated hands-on involvement throughout the tirage storage to create an extraordinary 2012 Chardonnay Pinot Noir Cuvée.

Opulent nose of dark berries with lifted aromas of violets and tobacco with hints of dried mint. Even and assured all the way across palate. Tension on finish. Contentment thereafter. A fruited-sweet attaque ... and then that seductive acidity – not camouflaged by a dosage at only 4 g/L. Moreover delicate, not minimalist. Faintly recognisable pecan and Brazil nut, apple and spice. Refreshingly expressive.

Cellaring: Now to 2040
Food/Dish: Linguini with Clams
Enjoy at: Crown Cellar & Co.
