With our first Champagne Brut Rosé release, we celebrate the shared mutual style and quality ambitions between Thiénot chef de cave Nicholas Uriel and Penfolds Chief Winemaker Peter Gago.
The palate is balanced, with an overt freshness and a delicate dosage imprint on finish. With a bright/vivid pale-salmon hue, the Champagne Brut Rosé is ready to drink in its youth and perfect to enjoy now.
With this inaugural 2012 vintage, we have re-ignited our love affair with France, a special place for Penfolds, where our first Chief Winemaker Max Schubert was inspired to create Grange. Partnered with Thiénot, a respected player in the world of Champagne, we instigated hands-on involvement throughout the tirage storage to create this extraordinary release.Discover More
Youthful, bright/vivid pale-salmon Nose
An ascent of (textbook) grenadine fruits – Avec raspberry, redcurrant, blackcurrant and strawberry. Sans pomegranate. And the citrus - pink grapefruit / mandarin marmalade.
And the florals/confiserie – scents of Anis de Flavigny Violet Pastiles or Violets of Toulouse; lily.
Upon sitting – wafts of cherry jam, sorry confiture.
Balanced, with an overt freshness - crispness up-front, and a delicate dosage imprint on finish. Relaxed acidity, friendly effervescence.
Subtle mandarin and raspberry fruits impact immediately – over a flavour base of strawberry with pepper / Turkish Delight with pistachio.
Stylistically light on its feet and sprightly … its ‘Champagne character’ teasingly revealed upon sitting. Impatience? A second glass immediately beckons.
Peter joined the winemaking team in 1989, initially in the craftsmanship of sparkling wines, before moving on to reds as Penfolds Red Wine Maker. In 2002 Peter became the fourth ever Chief Winemaker for Penfolds. Together with his fellow winemakers, Peter’s careful custodianship has ensured that Grange and the other ‘older’ members of the Penfolds family, have continued to set the benchmark for their style and quality, while new additions to the range push the boundaries ever wider.
