2014 Pierre Peters "Cuvee Speciale, Esprit' Brut Champagne, France (750ml)
The Pierre Péters estate, situated in the heart of the "Côte des Blancs" in the village of Le Mesnil sur Oger, has been a family house for six generations and has produced Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs Champagnes since 1919. Classified as a Champagne grower-producer, their wines come exclusively from their own vineyards.
The house currently operates just over 19 hectares of Chardonnay, mainly located in the communes of Le Mesnil sur Oger, Oger, Avize and Cramant. The family has developed, across generations, its own selection of grapes (mass selection). They have been able to maintain and age vineyards which are now 30-years old on average. Each year in respect of the environment, they adapt cultivation methods to obtain healthy grapes so that their Champagne expresses more precisely the richness, subtlety and the elegance of the great "terroirs" of the Côte des Blancs. L'Esprit is a vintage Champagne blend elaborated only during the best harvest years. It originates from 4 single vineyards located in Le Mesnil, Avize, Cramant, Oger (100 % Grand Cru Chardonnay).
