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. Les Montjolys single-vineyard cuvee comes from seven parcels within the only site in Le Mesnil-Sur-Oger where argile a silex is found. The deep clay soils give Les Montjolys its richer, smokier character and more rounded, creamy texture. 2012 was the first release of ‘Les Montjolys’

The seven parcels were all vinified separately. Fermentation took place in stainless steel and remained in tank on their lees (with regular tastings) until the assemblage. Following the second fermentation, the wine aged for a minimum of six years on lees before disgorgement.

Weather: The 2012 weather has been hallmarked by many as very challenging but has created some stunning Champagne. Relatively low yields due to various weather conditions throughout the year. The winter months brought some frosts and hail which damaged the early stages of bud burst. August and September were mostly dry very warm and this helped rescue and give the grapes a stunning maturity.

Technical Information:
Vineyards: 100% Le Mesnil-Sur-Oger in the heart of the Cote des Blancs
Grape Varieties: 100% Chardonnay
Lees Ageing: 6 years
Disgorged: November 2018
Dosage: 3.5 g/l
Drink: Now to 2030

Tasting Note: Ample and explosive, with tremendous backing energy, the Montjolys has so much going on. Orange marmalade, spice, butter, hazelnut and lemon confit are front and center. More than anything else, the Les Montjolys possesses tons of breadth and resonance, not to mention considerable character.

Antonio Galloni
“Here in its first release, the 2012 Blanc de Blancs Cuvée Spéciale Les Montjolys takes all of Pierre Péters signatures and gives them an extra kick of intensity that comes from the higher percentage of clay and generally heavier soils in this parcel, which sits just below Les Chétillons. Ample and explosive, with tremendous backing energy, the Montjolys has so much going on. Orange marmalade, spice, butter, hazelnut and lemon confit are front and center. More than anything else, the Les Montjolys possesses tons of breadth and resonance, not to mention considerable character. The Péters family owns three hectares across seven parcels in Montjolys, that form the backbone of the Cuvée de Réserve. This is the first release of pure Montjolys from Pierre Péters, and it is fabulous. Dosage is 3.5 grams per liter. Disgorged: November, 2018.”
