In Peter's words
"I thought it would be interesting to compare grape varieties in different terroirs. So Chardonnay from the Côte des Blancs vs. Montgueux, Meunier from the Coteaux Sud vs. Petite Montagne, Pinot Noir from Bouzy vs. the Aube. Plus as an alternate picture of terroir, Agrapart’s Complantée and Lassaigne’s terrific Coteaux Champenois blanc. Then two of the best rosés in Champagne, one blended and one saignée. On top of these I have chosen a selection of rare and older cuvées too."
