365 Days of Wine
One down, 364 more to go! But a GREAT start...
January 01, 2010
My first wine of 2010, Pierre Peters Champagne Blanc de Blancs Brut Cuvee de Reserve. My favorite small grower Champagne, from Oger sur Mesnil. Wow, as always. Fluffy clean, light and complex, never heavy or doughy. Just white flower, clean minerally flavors, fine frothy bubbles, a heavenly nose of light clean floral, mineral tones with just the hint of yeast. Went so perfectly with lobster, and was a great way to start a new year.
