Pierre Peters Champagne Blanc de Blancs Brut ‘L’Esprit de 2013’

Sparkling Wine from France - Champagne
Review Date : 29-Nov-2018
Bright straw-yellow colour with pale golden hues, lighter on the edge, the bubbles fine and persistent. The bouquet is softly full and voluminous with aromas of white stonefruits and white florals harmoniously layered with good depth and intensity of detailed bready-yeasty autolysis. The aromatics are pure with an up-front accessibility. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has elegant flavours of white stonefruits, white florals and a hint of citrus fruit with delicate nutty elements, melded with soft but positive bread and yeast autolysis. The fruit sweetness and richness feature and this is balanced by gentle lacy acidity, with soft effervescence. The wine flows along a a soft, very fine line leading to a floral and bready finish. This is a softly clean and pure, accessible Blanc de Blancs Champagne with rich white stonefruit flavours and harmonious autolysis on a very fine-textured palate. Serve as an aperitif over the next 3+ years. 100% grand cru Chardonnay, from Le Mesnil, Avize, Cramant and Oger, fermented to 12.0% alc. and a dosage of 4.2 g/L, disgorged April 2018. Lot L580889. 18.5/20 Nov 2018 RRP $125.00
