A Bottle Of Bubbly - 2008 L`Esprit Blanc de Blancs, Pierre Peters

 2008 L`Esprit Blanc de Blancs, Pierre Peters
I opened this yesterday and as good as it was, it is even better today. The nose is deep and focused with fine notes of lemon cream, freshly washed clothes, nuts, summer flowers and pickled ginger. Very complex. A creamy character yet refined. Very, very good.
The taste is young, fresh and salivating with notes of white currants, crushed rocks, lemon cream and vanilla cookie dough. Very long, taut and intense with a piercing acidity. Needs another 5-8 years to give that round, matured feeling, but it is impossible to resist today.
93p   (tasted 2015/11)

Truffle potato crisps are a perfect compliment to one or four glasses of Champagne, especially Blanc de Blancs. This was a new producer for me and while good it has a tiny burnt touch that lingered on.
