Pierre Peters non-vintage Champagne Blanc de Blancs Cuvee de Reserve

Pale straw color, vigorous pinpoint bubbles.

Smells of toast, wet stones, peach. The smell of some well-aged reserve wine in the cuvee is apparent.

Flavors of green apple, pear, citrus, toasty flavor of long contact with the lees.

I stand in awe after my first experience of Terry Theise-selected Champagne. I find this a bargain at $34.99 / 375 ml. Even though I know this exceeds my stated high-water-mark for posting, even though it's only a half-bottle, it's champagne and I'll pay for champagne. Soon, I think, I'll remove the whole paragraph at the bottom of the blog template about having a high-water-mark.

100% chardonnay.
