PIERRE PÉTERS “Cuvée de Réserve” Blanc de Blancs Brut Grand Cru NV
(Champagne, France) $62
From Grand Cru vineyards in the famous tiny village of Le Mesnil-sur-Oger comes Pierre Péters’ Blanc de Blancs–one the greatest Blanc de Blancs in Champagne. The wine falls on the palate in cascades of fresh snow. Very refined and very rich, it’s a Champagne that mounts and mounts to a vivid high pitch of flavor, then descends slowly, leaving you in what can only be described as a trance of hedonism. (Should you need an excuse: the holidays are around the corner).
