Bubbles for New Year’s Eve

I often say Champagne was my first love. It is what I first got excited aboutin wine. For a long time I thought about Champagne as this romantic faraway place (because it’s on the other side of the world from me)  where the juice of the Gods is made. When I made the trip across the ocean it was that place except really cold, rainy and dreary while I was there. After visiting some classic producers I made my way to the village of Les Mesnil Sur Oger. I was lucky enough to find myselfin the cellar of Pierre Peters. The wine maker Rudolph Peters sat down with me and tasted for the 3 hours. We opened his family wines going back to 1970’s, it was incredible.

Every time I feel the need to drink something a little epic, I open a bottle of his Cuvee Speciale LES CHETILLONS Blanc de Blanc-Grand Cru. It is a powerful and complex wine that gives aromatics of apricot, honey, white flower. Like all great wine, it seems to taste better with good company!
