The makers of Penfolds Grange have worked closely in collaboration with Le Clos to certify the collection, including the re-corking of six vintages by Penfolds Chief Winemaker Peter Gago.

Unbroken Chain, Decades of Vintages

Le Clos has created an innovative proposition for sale, allowing the eventual buyer to admire the unbroken chain of vintages as part of a complete collector’s set, as well as an additional two vintages from each decade, for them to taste and enjoy.

Oliver Dixon, Head of Wine at Le Clos commented: “The fact that we are hugely passionate about our customers has been the real driver in creating this collection. At Le Clos we are incredibly proud to have collated what is the most complete and unique Grange set in the world. We are excited to bring something so rare to wine lovers and enthusiasts travelling to and through Dubai.”
