Tasting Notes

Péters’s vintage brut is blended from the four grand cru villages of Le Mesnil, Oger, Avize and Cramant, although Le Mesnil always accounts for the largest percentage. Each vineyard contributes its own distinctive flavors to the wonderfully complex Champagne. White fruit and floral notes, zestly citrus and minerality, white spice and a touch of licorice all come together. Serve in a wine glass to access all of these flavors.

Some wines can’t really be discussed because the experience is just too intimate.
