Champagne Pierre Peters Cuvée de Reserve Blanc de Blancs Brut Grand Cru NV

Champagne, FranceThe filigree and detailing of this wine are par none. Rudolphe Peters is the current generation overseeing this estate founded in 1919, nestled in the southern Côte des Blancs' Le Mesnil sur Oger. Grapes for this cuvée come mostly from that village, with supplementing fruit from Oger, Cramant, and Avize. It goes through 75% MLF, and the base wines age in a mix of stainless, wood, and concrete. There are ample reserve wines here (40%), which have gone through a solera more than 20 vintages deep. It spent two years on lees and was disgorged with 7 g/l. Chiselled chalk is met with lemon, green apple, meringue, and finishing with a wash of mineral salts. The mid-palate is cushioned, but still slender. Quite fine.Tasted: 15 December 2019Tasted by: Prices: BC 74.99 private wine shops Producer: Champagne Pierre PetersDistributors: International Cellars Inc.
