The Penet family has been growing grapes in the Champagne region for 400 years. Today, Alexandre and his wife Martine produce a range of wines from Premiers Crus and Grands Crus vineyards on the Montagne de Reims and in the Vallee de la Marne, all exemplars of their approach to pure, crystalline fruit and no masking with excessive dosage. Each wine is crafted to show its origins in terroir, in varietal composition. Alexandre is a true believer in letting the wines express their origins with the winemaker's purpose being to provide guidance and mentoring, rather than imposing his own will on the wine.
