Champagne Pierre Péters Rosé for Albane

pierre peters rose for albane

Had this at lunch yesterday, off the list at the excellent Kensington Wine Rooms. It was stunning. Champagne Pierre Péters is a Blanc de Blancs specialist located in Le Mesnil sur Oger, in the heart of the Côte des Blancs. Under the direction of Rodolphe Péters since 2008, this sixth generation family firm just makes wines from their own grapes. Fortunately they have sizeable holdings: 19 hectares of Chardonnay, most of which is in Le Mesnil sur Oger (15 hectares), Oger, Avize and Cramant. Vine age is high, averaging over 30 years. They introduced this rosé into their range in 2007, and it’s made by blending in some saignée Pinot Meunier to Chardonnay.

Champagne Pierre Péters Rosé for Albane NV France
Lively and intensely pretty, with nice sweet, textured citrus and pear fruit with hints of cherries. There’s a bit of spiciness here and also subtle toast, but the driving force is elegant fruitiness, with a bit of rose petal and cranberry character. Such lovely focus to this aromatic, fine fizz. 93/100
