La Maison Penet, Solaine Extra Brut ‘French Riviera’
A gourmet sparkling wine from the south of France, made in the traditional method by Champagne winemaker Alexandre Penet. Rich and generous yet highly refreshing, with elegant and fine bubbles. It has the white flower and tropical fruit notes of perfectly matured Chardonnay grapes and a seducing minerality expressive of its limestone terroir. 12.5%. Drink now to the end of 2020.
Ratings: Jancis Robinson 16/20 (2018)
Serving suggestions: An excellent aperitif wine, and an all-rounder for all kinds of occasions and celebrations. Very nice with fish and seafood, creamy pasta dishes or risotto.
