Pierre Peters Grand Cru Cuvee de Reserve Blanc de Blancs Brut Champagne
Winery: "This 100% Grand Cru Chardonnay non-vintage Champagne has an inherent complexity on the palate thanks to the addition of at least 40% reserve wine to the blend. Our perpetual reserve of wines, started in 1988, is inspired by the Soléra Method and is enriched with more than 20 different vintage years.
Nose: The first approach is both flowery and fruity, next come the notes of almond and fresh bread finishing with touches of citrus and green apple leaving a graceful impression of smoothness and freshness.
Palate: The first impression is frank, associating both finesse and smoothness, and is dominated by white flower fruits (lemon and pear) and floral notes (acacia). The mid-palate is nervy and taut.
The finish is persistent with pure citrus flavors and a twist of salinity which confirms the fact that the majority of the fruit is sourced from the great village of Le Mesnil sur Oger; the balance coming from the equally prestigious Grand Cru villages of Oger, Cramant and Avize."
