NV Pierre Péters Champagne Blanc de Blancs Brut Cuvée de Réserve - France, Champagne, Le Mesnil Sur Oger, Champagne (8/12/2013)
Straight out of the fridge this was really tight, but that was just because it was too cold. Fifteen minutes of air later, and a few degrees warmer the bright citrus and yeasty/bready tones were just pouring out of the glass. The warmer the wine got the better it showed, with increased richness but never any loss of precision. A very long finish carried through from first sip to last.
Served with steamed lobster with lemon and fresh corn on the cob for our traditional anniversary dinner. A brilliant match that enhanced both the food and the wine.
