"A jewel of a wine" -
2012 Pierre Peters l'Esprit

Posted by Ian McFadden

Few people can rival the incredible refinement and mineral-inflected elegance that Rodolphe Peters achieves with his Blanc de Blancs.

Peters makes some of the most beloved wines in all of Champagne. His mastery of the Côte des Blancs is nearly unparalleled.

Pierre Peters has a fairly large and strong line-up, but recently L'Esprit has emerged as one of our favorites.

L’Esprit is only made in top vintages, and it's sourced from four single vineyards in the Grand Crus of Le Mesnil, Avize, Cramant and Oger. In any given vintage the blend is at least 40% Le Mesnil, which accounts for the wine’s racy finesse and finely detailed minerality.

Peters' wines often demand time in the cellar to show their full glory. Thankfully, the 2012 l'Esprit isn't shy about revealing what makes Pierre Peters so riveting. It possesses a glorious textural minerality.

It's a Friday in August and most of you know the deal with Pierre Peters. The 2012 l'Esprit drives home just how pure and brilliant the wines can be.
