Tasting Notes

These are sleek, racy champagnes, expressing a classic character of Côte des Blancs chardonnay. They are marked
by their fine acidity and prominent minerality, yet while they are always brisk and chalky. “We have a lot of acidity
and a lot of minerality in all our wines,” says Rodolphe Péters. “We want to build the structure of our wines around
both acidity and minerality, not acidity alone.

Review:
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.
