PIERRE PÉTERS “Cuvée de Réserve” Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru NV Brut
(Champagne, France) $70
With all of their Grand Cru vineyards on the limestone veins that run through the Côte des Blancs, the grower Pierre Péters makes sleek, racy Champagnes that are jewels—ravishingly beautiful, snowy, crystalline. Perfect for a holiday celebration. Their brisk minerality plays on your palate like high notes on a piano. Yet the flavors are deeply resonant and complex. There’s something wonderfully salty about them, like sea spray on wet rocks, and something familiar yet surprising, like oranges tied up in ribbons of vanilla. The Pierre Péters winery was founded in 1919 and is now run by the fourth generation. Many of the family’s vineyards are specifically in the heralded Grand Cru village of Le Mesnil-sur-Oger.
