Description & Technical Information
-
Pierre Péters, one of Champagne’s most renowned growers, produces exclusively Blanc de Blancs champagnes, which are rated as some of the finest produced in the region. The Domaine is based in Le Mesnil-sur-Oger consisting of 82 plots over nearly 20 hectares of sustainably-managed vineyards, sixteen of which lie within the Côte des Blancs, primarily in Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, as well as the other prized villages of Avize, Cramant, Oger and Vertus. Sixth-generation owner, Rodolphe Péters took over the running of the family estate from his father, François in 2008, having been involved in the assemblage since 2000. He initiated the house’s ‘perpetual reserve’ of reserve wines in the late 1990s. A graduate in oenology and business, Rodolphe believes that “a good winemaker must listen to his raw materials,” practising minimal intervention both the winery and the vineyards.

The cuvée “L’Etonnant Monsieur Victor” (“The Astonishing Mister Victor”) refers to Rodolphe and Fabienne Péters’ son Victor, who from a very young age, has been passionate about art and painting. An enthusiastic artist, he created a series of works that interpret a well-known painting in the manner of a different artist. These images became the label artwork of L’Etonnant Monsieur Victor and for the first 6 vintages, the MK Edition, he mimics the style of Japanese neo-pop artist Takashi Murakami.

Expert Reviews

Antonio Galloni
“MK14 - A Champagne of gravitas and power, the 2014 L'Étonnant Monsieur Victor is endowed with notable resonance. Lemon confit, marzipan, white flowers, spice, licorice and graphite are amplified in a rich, vinous Champagne that is loaded with personality. Even with all of its intensity, the 2014 is very young and in need of time to soften. Dosage is 3.5-4.5 grams per liter. Disgorged: November, 2020. ”

“MK13 - The NV Brut L'Etonnant Monsieur Victor (2013 base) is a blend of equal parts 2013 Chétillons and 2012 Réserve Oubliée, aged on cork. That blend yields a rich, textured Champagne loaded with aromatic and flavor complexity. Lemon confit, chamomile, dried flowers and spice are some of the many nuances that infuse this release with so much character. The 2013 Monsieur Victor is a bit more forward than the 2013 Chétillons and Montjolys, which makes sense because of the reserve portion. I would prefer to drink it over the next decade or so, preferably at the dinner table, as it is a Champagne of tremendous substance and depth. Dosage is 3.5-4.5 grams per liter. Disgorged: December, 2019.”

“MK12 - The NV L’Etonnant Monsieur Victor (2012 base) is another stunning wine in this lineup from Rodolphe Péters. For this cuvée, Péters blends his best tank of 2012 Chétillons with the 2011 Réserve Oubliée and ages the wine on cork. Dense, powerful and bursting at the seams with energy, the 2012 Etonnant Monsieur Victor makes a strong opening statement. Apricot, wild flowers, chamomile, hazelnut and orange peel build on a beautifully resonant, expressive Champagne that hits all the right notes. The 2012 is virile and imposing, not to mention loaded with character. Disgorged: December, 2018.”

Antonio Galloni
“MK11 - The NV Etonnant Monsieur Victor, a blend of equal parts the best tank of 2011 Les Chétillons and the base of 2010 Reserve Oubliée aged on cork, is another impressive wine from Rodolphe Péters. Mineral and bright citrus notes abound in a Champagne that exudes class and distinction from the very first taste. It seems pretty obvious that the blend of components helped Péters get the most out of 2011. The Etonnant Monsieur Victor is gorgeous in every way. Disgorged: April 2018.”

“MK10 - The NV (2010) L’Etonnant Monsieur Victor is terrific. Here the addition of reserve wines add mid-palate depth and pliancy that the Chétillons doesn’t have. Citrus, orchard fruit, almond, mint and white flowers are beautifully delineated. Focused and precise, yet with lovely mid-palate creaminess, the 2010 is a winner. The Etonnant Monsieur Victor is the best tank of Chétillons plus reserve wines from the Reserve Oubliée, aged on the cork.”

Antonio Galloni
“MK09 - The 2009 L’Etonnant Monsieur Victor, a new wine from Rodolphe Péters is a blend of the best tank of 2009 Chétillons and a tank of Réserve Oubliée. This is the best bottle of the 2009 I have tasted yet. Rich, ample and radiant, in the best style of the year, the Etonnant Monsieur Victor is superb today. Lemon confit, peach, spice, white flowers and brioche shape the generous, inviting finish. I confess at the outset I did not really see the rationale of sacrificing the best tank of Chétillons for the Monsieur Victor, but this bottle may have changed my mind. This is a superb showing.”

“MK13 - Scents of citrus oil, mint, peach, toasted walnuts, orange oil and freshly baked sourdough introduce Péters's NV L’Étonnant Monsieur Victor Edition MK 13, a medium to full-bodied, fleshy and enveloping wine that's tangy and incisive thanks to its 2013 base vintage, but where that year's youthful austerity is masterfully complemented by reserve wines to bring this cuvée more immediate plenitude. This has turned out very nicely indeed.”
96/100
William Kelley
“MK12 - "Why has the non-vintage concept largely been reserved to entry-level wines?" pondered Péters, and he decided to produce a new cuvée to change that. Based on the 2012 Les Chétillons and supplemented by wine from the family's long-established perpetual reserve, the NV L’Étonnant Monsieur Victor Edition MK 12 is the latest rendition, and it's showing very well, opening in the glass with aromas of lemon oil, warm bread, white flowers, crushed chalk, oyster shells and wheat toast. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, rich and layered, with superb concentration, racy acids and a precise, intensely saline finish.”
93/100
William Kelley
“MK11 - The NV L’Étonnant Monsieur Victor Edition MK 11 opens in the glass with a complex bouquet of lemon oil, dried white flowers, chalky soil tones and an elegant top note of fino sherry. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, deep and fine-boned, with racy acids, an open and expressive but discreet core and a long, distinctly saline finish.”

William Kelley
“MK09 - The NV L'Étonnant Monsieur Victor Edition MK09 is the first release of a newly created top Chardonnay cuvée that blends the best tanks of Les Chétillons with the best vats of the family's perpetual reserve (solera). Based on 2009 and disgorged in December 2015, this Blanc des Blancs offers an intense and ripe nose that indicates a lovely maturity of ripe and baked apples with a touch of cinnamon. Full-bodied, round, intense and fresh on the palate, this is a very pure, lean and mineral, but also fruity Champagne with a very long and complex finish. A simply great new Champagne whose artistic label is very cool.”
