What do 98 point Krug Clos du Mesnil (at $1,000) and 97 point Salon Le Mesnil (at $450) not want you to know?
They don't want you to know about Pierre Peters Le Mesnil, Grand Cru Champagne. Le Mesnil is a Grand Cru village in Champagne, home to some of the most exquisite Chardonnay.
Pierre Peters produces its Champagne in the same Grand Cru village as giants like Krug, Salon, and Jacques Selosse.
Vibrant and crisp, there is an energy that you don't find in other Champagnes. This beauty is dry with chalky notes along with white flower and citrus on entry. Secondary notes of blanched nuts, lemon, pear, and grapefruit rind bring freshness to bubbles that dance endlessly. An elegant Champagne, there are mild notes of toasted bread - well integrated we might add and certainly not a dominate characteristic.
Cherry-picking only the finest fruit for this, their Blanc de Blancs (100% Chardonnay Champagne), they sell off the bottom 20% of production to the more commercial and popular brands. With Pierre Peters, you are getting the best of the best "juice;" it is the Champagne that people in the industry enjoy. In fact, it is the best-kept secret in Champagne!
Incredibly food-friendly, we don’t think you need a special occasion for Champagne. But if you do, Grand Cru Pierre Peters only costs $56. Now that's something to celebrate!
We've tried to feature this Champagne over the past few holidays, but the wine is typically sold-out before Thanksgiving.
