NV Pierre Peters Cuvee de Reserve Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru

Pierre Peters

Les Mensil-sur-Oger, Champagne, France

The NV Brut Cuvée de Réserve is a precise, crystalline wine that is the perfect wine to explore the Péters Champagnes. Lemon peel white, flowers and slate are super-expressive throughout in a Champagne that impresses with its finely-sculpted personality and energy. The Cuvée de Réserve is quite powerful, but never heavy. Slightly tropical overtones add the final shades of nuance. The Cuvée de Réserve draws on fruit sources outside Mesnil. It remains one of the best values in artisan Champagne. ANTONIO GALLONI

The Pierre Péters Champagnes stand out for their crystalline precision, energy and nuance, which makes them reference points for what Chardonnay is all about in the Côtes des Blancs and Mesnil, in particular for the Chétillons. When I want to drink brilliant, pure Blanc des Blancs, I often reach for the wines of this small, family-owned estate. ANTONIO GALLONI

Very few champagnes more eloquently articulate their terroirs than those of Pierre Peters. On my first encounter with the young Rodolphe Peters, three hours of exploring the fruits of three decades left me mesmerised by the remarkable capacity of the chardonnay vine to extract the salty minerality of the Cotes de Blancs' finest grand crus and preserve it in its wines for time eternal. I left with the realisation of another dimension to champagne, one in which minerality assumes a personality all of its own. TYSON STELZER
