Grongnet, Champagne "Special Club", Champagne, France 2009Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier, Chardonnay A ZESTY ELIXIR! CITRUS & WAXY LEES. VIBRANT, FIRM, & ELEGANT The "Special Club" distinction is indeed reserved for the best of the best. An elite group of 26 Champagne producers uses the signature bottle shape for their top vintage Champagnes. Each vintage must be put to the Club's tasting panel for certification. Extended aging and superior flavor quality are among the requirements to pass muster. Located just outside of Epernay in the Cote des Blancs, Grongnet represents 5 generations of Champagne production. Yielding tiny, firm bubbles in the glass, this remarkable wine finds the palate with a richness that goes on for minutes and a lingering impression of bright, waxy, full-bodied seduction. Serving Suggestion: Toasted brioche, smoked salmon & caviar. In a bath tub with someone you love. Extraordinary occasions.
