Pale gold with green tinges. Pleasant perlage with minuscule bubbles that just go on and on. Very pretty visually. Intoxicating aromas of white and purple flowers initially. Mushrooms, grapefruits, and white pears shine along with beautiful chalk. Gorgeous.
The Côte des Blancs really speak clearly through this wine. 100% Chardonnay produced from grapes from four Grand Cru sites, Les Mesnil-sur-Oger, Cramant, Avize, and Oger. And it shows. An astonishing 40% of reserve wine is added to the blend, which is from a perpetual reserve of wines going back to 1988. Amazing stuff.
This is all very graceful, very refined. Everything in the right place. Full bodied and elegant with racy acidity and exquisite balance and structure. The palate is harmonious with stone and orchard fruits and toast. Quite saline with nice minerality and subtle spice. Real bubbleheads already know everything they need to know about Pierre Peters but if you don’t know, now you know. You’re welcome. — 14 days ago
Fresco e ottimo ma da un Salon mi aspetto oltre. Comunque nulla da recriminare — 22 days ago
The other great Blanc de Blancs from the owners of the legendary Maison Salon, it is 100% Chardonnay from vineyards in Le Mesnil sur Oger, in the heart of the Chardonnay-producing Côte des Blancs. Elegant, mineral, beautiful nose. Great freshness. — 8 days ago

2021/4. This was my first experience with this producer. It started very bright, with white flowers and lots of juicy apple. With time it opened to show more butter and brioche richness. On the rich side of brut. — 8 days ago
2021 winter. This might be my favorite Peters wine to drink on release for the extra depth, complexity and richness - the degree seems to vary by bottle or lot (or maybe it’s landed age - hard to say with no disgorgement info), but it’s never at the expense of freshness. — 8 days ago
