Champagne Pierre Peters Cuvee de Reserve Blanc de Blancs
Champagne Pierre Péters is one of the most venerable names in the Côte des Blancs, producing sleek, racy Champagnes marked by their fine acidity and minerality. Rodolphe Péters took over the reins of the estate in 2008, becoming the fourth generation to lead since the estate was founded in 1919. Today, they hold 18 hectares of vineyards, mainly in the grand cru of Les Mesnil-sur-Oger.
WA91: Disgorged in June 2019, the latest rendition of Péters' NV Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Cuvée de Réserve offers up a lovely bouquet of citrus oil, pear, pastry cream, dried white flowers, hazelnuts and crushed chalk. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, fine-boned and elegant, with ripe but racy acids, a delicate pinpoint mousse and a long, saline finish. As usual, this is an immensely refined Champagne that exemplifies the timeless style of this Mesnil-based Chardonnay specialist.
