This delivers its richness and intensity with gentleness an impressive trick for a completely dry wine. The scent of fresh cream of meadow flowers and lime transforms into a darker minerality as the wine turns from juicy to saline in the finish. Frisky in its youth this will age with grace.

Very fine bready lemon citrus aromas here; a restrained, fresh and attractively raw expression of chardonnay aromas. The palate unleashes more flamboyant fruit flavors, heading through citrus to nectarine and peach. The... Very fine bready lemon citrus aromas here; a restrained, fresh and attractively raw expression of chardonnay aromas. The palate unleashes more flamboyant fruit flavors, heading through citrus to nectarine and peach. The focus never wavers. Long, fine and pure. - Nick Stock

The current release of Pierre Péters “Cuvée de Réserve” Blanc de Blancs non-vintage Brut was disgorged in February of 2015 and includes forty percent reserve wines, from the domaine’s solera, which was started in 1988. This is primarily base year 2012 and the wine was finished with a dosage of just over six grams per liter. The bouquet is deep and fairly youthful, wafting from the glass in a blend of pear, delicious apple, pastry cream, chalky soil tones, spring flowers and fresh almond. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and quite powerful in style in the classic Mesnil profile, with a rock solid core, brisk acids, slightly coarse mousse, fine focus and nascent complexity on the long, crisp and well-balanced finish. This is still a puppy, and while it is quite approachable today, it really needs at least a few years in the cellar to blossom more fully. It will be a very good bottle in the fullness of time, but never the most elegant of bubblies. 2018-2035+.

Open-knit and fresh with an undertow of minerally salinity and flavors of Fuji apple anise apricot pastry dough and orange zest. Finely tuned acidity and an airy texture lead to a lingering floral finish. Disgorged February 2012. Drink now through 2015. -AN

This is a beautifully balanced selection that's crisp and laced with taut apple and citrus flavors. It has a rich texture intense fruit and a tight minerality which gives it structure and the potential for bottle aging. -...
