Clear pale yellow color with a very fine bead. This bottle was disgorged April 2014 and perhaps needs more time to settle down as it didn't taste as balanced as the prior few bottles (also likely a different mix of reserve wines in this bottle). Aromas a bit muted, but did pick-up some yellow/green fruits, mostly apples. An elegant and enjoyable wine, though will wait another year before trying again.

About This Producer


The Peters family has originated a stunning line of champagnes in the Mesnil sur Oger region of Champagne. The Blanc de Blancs wines are of immensely complex, yet crisp, proportion. Their concentration of mineral and balanced acidity is the perfect foil to the citrusy fruit that seamlessly rounds out the package. This is Chardonnay-driven champagne at its best.

Wine Varietal: Chardonnay


Arguably the best dry white wine grape out there, Chardonnay is grown all over the globe. In addition to being the backbone of fine white Burgundies, Chardonnay is also one of the three major grape varieties used in producing Champagne. Susceptible to a myriad of complications, Chardonnay berries are relatively small, thin-skinned, fragile, and oxidize easily. Chardonnay grapes can be sensitive to winemaking techniques and more difficult to handle from harvest to bottling than many other varieties. Some producers will use malolactic fermentation (where harsher malic acid is turned into softer lactic acid and carbon dioxide) to reduce crispness and acidity and add a creamy, buttery texture to wines. The "oaky" character of some Chardonnays comes from fermenting or aging which takes place in oak barrels. Once barrel-aged, Chardonnay may take on notes of vanilla or toast. While Chardonnay is produced worldwide, the best can be found in France, the United States, Argentina, Chile, Australia, Italy, New Zealand, and South Africa. Typical descriptors for Chardonnay include mineral, green apple, citrus, tropical fruits, vanilla, butter and smokiness.
