Reviews 93 points Wine Advocate "Based on the 2015 vintage and blending Peters's Chardonnay with a saignee of Pinot Meunier from Rene Geoffroy, the latest rendition of the NV Brut Rose for Albane bursts with complex aromas of red apples, pomelo, fresh mint, licorice and shrimp shell. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, delicate and incisive, with a delicate phenolic presence and a sneakily persistent finish. Peters contends that the tannins of Pinot Noir would amplify the austerity of Le Mesnil, hence his decision to work with Pinot Meunier. (WK)" 90 points John Gilman "(Based on the 2018) The wine takes its lovely, deep salmon color from a saignee of the pinot meunier. The vins clairs are aged in stainless steel and the wine is given two years aging sur latte prior to disgorgement. It offers up a bright and nascently complex nose of cherries, rhubarb, chalky soil, lovely floral tones, a nice touch of spice and a smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, focused and zesty, with a good core of fruit, snappy acids, fine balance, frothy mousse and a long, nascently complex finish. This is still a very young wine and will drink even better with a few years in the cellar. (JG)"

About Pierre Peters

This sixth-generation producer is a hidden treasure of the region, setting the standard for exemplary Cote des Blancs Champagnes. Their wines are crafted exclusively from estate vineyards in the esteemed Grand Cru villages of Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, Oger, Cramant, and Avize and are made 100% from Chardonnay grapes.

What sets Pierre Peters apart from their more expensive competitors is their unique clone of Chardonnay. This, combined with the east-facing hillside vineyards and chalky soils, allows for the production of wines with complex notes of exotic fruit, coffee, walnut, and butterscotch. I highly recommend aging these bottles for up to 25 years to fully experience the evolution of flavors. With a limited production of only 13,000 cases per year, be sure to keep an eye out for their most prized bottling, "Cuvee Speciale Les Chetillons," for a truly sensational and elegant Champagne experience.
