2014 Pierre Peters "L'Esprit" Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Brut Champagne
Always on the short list of greatest producers of Blanc de Blancs Champagne, Pierre Peters crafts wines with racy precision and exciting energy.
“These are sleek, racy champagnes, expressing a classic character of Côte des Blancs chardonnay. They are marked by their fine acidity and prominent minerality, yet while they are always brisk and chalky, they are rarely austere, with the possible exception of certain vintages of the Cuvée Spéciale. All of the wines go through malolactic, due to their naturally high acidities. “We have a lot of acidity and a lot of minerality in all our wines,” says Rodolphe Péters. “We want to build the structure of our wines around both acidity and minerality, not acidity alone.”
