Champagne Pierre Péters "Extra-Brut" Grand Cru - Blanc de Blancs
Region: Côte de Blanc Grand Crus - Le Mesnil, Avize, Cramant, Oger
Variety: 100% Chardonnay
Rodolphe Péters has been running the family business since 2008. The estate has about 18Ha of vineyards, of which 90% are in the four Grand Cru villages of Le Mesnil, Avize, Cramant and Oger. Pierre Péters is one of the most loved producers in all of Champagne. Their mastery of the Côte des Blancs is nearly unparalleled, the wines flaunt incredible refinement and pure, mineral elegance.
The Extra Brut is sourced from the four Côte des Blancs Grand Crus villages. In any given vintage the blend is at least 40% Le Mesnil, which helps explain the wine’s racy elegance. The vintage wine is blended with 20% perpetual reserve wine. The Extra Brut is exactly the same wine as the “l”Esprit” vintage, only it's released earlier with 1 or 2 grams of dosage.
Made only from exceptional vintages, the wine spends 36 months on lees. It’s a hugely satisfying and electric wine revealing the typical chalk of Le Mesnil.
