92 points, “Opening with potted ginger and white flowers on the clear, fresh, precise and chalky nose, this is a pure, fresh, elegant, beautifully dry and chalky Grand Cru with an expressive, stimulating iodine-inflected finish that reveals a persistent structure and freshness. This is a damned serious and chalky Blanc de Blancs.” – Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

Pierre Péters Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Extra Brut has been described by Jancis Robinson as “a sort of Chablis of Champagne”, such is its elegance. The wine comprises pure Chardonnay picked from four top parcels in Le Mesnil, Avize, Cramant and Oger, and it’s matured on the lees (the spent yeast that gives Champagne its creamy, nutty and bready character) for 36 months. Expect floral notes of hawthorn and honeysuckle, accompanied by almond croissant, freshly baked baguette, creamy praline, citrus sorbet, faint liquorice, orchard fruit, chalk, oyster shells and sea spray. Immensely complex, this is a wine you’re going to want to take your time over.

Richard Juhlin, one of the world’s leading Champagne experts who holds the world record for the most Champagnes ever tasted, says, “Pierre Péters is a hidden treasure of Champagne… and the prices are laughable considering the quality of the wines.”

Rodolphe Péters only took over Champagne Pierre Péters in 2007 and is already one of the most respected growers in Le Mesnil-sur-Oger. Widely considered to be among the finest produced in the region, his wines are renowned for their mineral power and their ageing potential. The non-vintage bottles incorporate a very high proportion of reserve wine, carefully assembled over decades in a kind of solera system called a Perpetual Reserve, similar to those used by the likes of Bérêche & Fils, Jacques Selosse and Louis Roederer. This was started in 1988 and so now contains more than 20 different vintages, resulting in wines of incredible complexity.
