MAGNUMS! Is this the best quality and value Grand Cru Grower Champagne in the market?
Wow we were mesmerized by this highly sought after grower champagne from this sixth generation champagne family! 12 hectares of prime vineyard in the best site of Le Mesnil has produced an extraordinary blanc de blanc champagne. Scintillating purity and power of fruit,finesse, minerality and complexity thanks to the base reserve wine from 1988 also enriched with more than 20 different vintages. The terroirs of Le Mesnil are on show revealing the remarkable capacity of the chardonnay vine to extract the gorgeous minerality and tang of the Cotes de Blancs’ finest grand crus. Bulk of fruit hails from grand cru Le Mesnil-sur-Oger with the balance coming from equally prestigious grand cru sites in Oger, Chouilly and Cramant. 60% current vintage, 40% reserve solera from 18 vintages, Dosage is 7 g/L. 12% Alc.Treat yourself here! Vive La France !!
Available here in Magnums (1.5 litres or 2 bottle equivalent) For those in the know, one of the joyful quirks about this under Magnum is Rodolph Peters includes vintage champagne (we never know which vintage wine he uses) so this is ratcheted up again in terms of quality! Extraordinary !!
ANTONIO GALLONI “A precise, crystalline wine, the NV Brut Cuvée de Réserve is the perfect wine with which to explore the Péters Champagnes. Lemon peel,white flowers and slate are super-expressive throughout in a Champagne that impresses with its finely-sculpted personality and energy. The Cuvée de Réserve is quite powerful, but never heavy. Slightly tropical overtones add the final shades of nuance. The current release is based on 2012, with 50% reserve wines dating back to 1988. The Cuvée de Réserve draws on fruit sources outside Mesnil. It remains one of the best values in artisan Champagne.”
TYSON STELZER, The Champagne Guide 2016-2017 PIERRE PETERS (9/10) “Very few champagnes more eloquently articulate their terroirs than those of Pierre Peters. On my first encounter with the young Rodolphe Peters, three hours of exploring the fruits of three decades left me mesmerised by the remarkable capacity of the chardonnay vine to extract the salty minerality of the Cotes de Blancs’ finest grand crus and preserve it in its wines for time eternal. I left with the realisation of another dimension to champagne, one in which minerality assumes a personality all of its own. And I discovered Les Chetillons, the Le Montrachet of Le Mesnil-sur-Oger.
60% curent vintage, 40% reserve solera from 18 vintages, grand Cru Cotes de Blancs, 6-7 g/L dosage: DIAM closure.
With all the theatrics of Peter’s masterful reserve solera, this is one of the best value aperitifs in all of Champagne. Effortlessly integrated, ravishingly poised and incisively soil-driven. It’s a wine of pronounced minerality and seamless fruit purity. The 2009 base dutifully follows the great 2008 with its pristine lemon and grapefruit, hints of fennel, wonderful mineral precision and crystalline freshness. …..a grand monument to the signature chalk minerality of the Cotes des Blancs.”
RICHARD JUHLIN, 4000 Champagnes: “The Peters family came originally from Luxembourg, before Pierre settled in Les Mesnil. The always smiling and tremendously skilful Francois Peters controls 17.5 hectares, twelve of which lie in the very best parts of Le Mesnil. Pierre Peters is a hidden treasure of champagne – so far anyway – and the prices are laughable considering the quality of the wines.”
