"Pierre Peters' 1998 Brut Millesime Champagne really opened my mind. This is a very bubbly, big and rich Champagne made from 100% Chardonnay. My immediate thought after taking my first sip was, er… beer. The wine has a very pronounced yeasty character. Second, I got some hints of Sherry or perhaps White Port. Lastly, I got some minerality and some citrus fruit. Drinking companion E.F. Glutton described the fruit as juice from lemon slices that have been in the fridge for a couple of days. He also detected nut flavors. I’m quite sure my inexperienced palate isn’t doing justice to this wine, so do read the impressions of Pierre Rovani, Stephen Tanzer and Wine Spectator."
