Champagne Pierre Peters Rosé for Albane NV

Champagne, FrancePouring such a deep peach hue, this newer rosé (first produced in 2007) is a departure in style for the Blanc de blancs house Pierre Peters. This cuvée is 55% chardonnay from Le Mesnil-Sur-Oger Grand Cru, and 45% Meunier rosé de saignée from Cumières 1er Cru, based on the 2018 vintage. It went through partial MLF, and was 60% fermented in stainless before heading into bottle before 24 months on lees and an 8 g/L dosage. Ripe raspberry, cherry yogurt, brioche fills the creamy core, spiced with rose petals and baking spice and livened with a pink grapefruit spritz.Tasted: 20 November 2021Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 120.00 private wine shops Producer: Champagne Pierre PetersDistributors: International Cellars Inc.
