Description & Technical Information
-
Pierre Peters, one of Champagne’s most renowned growers, produces exclusively Blanc de Blancs champagnes, which are generally rated as being among the finest produced in the region. The domaine is based in Le Mesnil-Sur-Oger. The domaine owns 82 plots over nearly 20 hectares of sustainably-managed vineyards. Sixteen hectares lie within the Cote des Blancs, primarily in Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, as well as the other prized villages of Avize, Cramant, Oger and Vertus. The Extra Brut is made using fruit which comes from a selection of the best plots from Le Mesnil-Sur-Oger, Oger, Cramant and Avize.

This is Rodolphe Peters’ main wine made from a blend of 2017 Chardonnay from top villages in the Côte des Blancs, mainly in the home village of Le Mesnil-sur-Oger. The wine remains in tank on lees until the assemblage, when 50% reserve wines were added to the blend. The reserve wines come from Rodolphe’s ‘perpetual reserve’ which was founded on the 1988, 1990, 1993 and 1996 harvests, though today only a small percentage of those vintages would remain in the reserve. These reserve wines are stored in a combination of large wooden barrels (foudres), concrete and stainless steel vats.

Expert Reviews
91/100
Antonio Galloni
“The NV Blanc de Blancs Cuvée de Réserve is such a gorgeous wine. Bright, mineral and savory, with attractive tropical accents, the Cuvée de Réserve offers striking nuance and tons of class. This release is based on 2016, with reserve wines that go back to 1988. Partially blocked malolactic fermentation helps preserve a measure of freshness, but what impresses most is the wine’s total sense of balance. For readers who want to know what the Côte des Blancs is all about, without spending the money for an elite cuvée, this is the place to start.”

Josh Raynolds
“Light gold. Highly perfumed bouquet of yellow apple, pear skin and quinine, with a smoky mineral overtone. Spicy orchard and candied citrus fruit flavors are complemented by notes of sweet butter and anise and gain weight with air. The impressively focused finish shows strong mineral cut and lingering spiciness.”
16.5/20
Jancis Robinson MW
“A more friendly, approachable wine than the Extra Brut – and more tight knit. Very fine bead and great, sappy balance between the delicate fruit and something more substantial – presumably the reserve wines. Really quite fine and rewarding with this more mature undertow beneath the particularly zesty initial impression.”
