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.

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.

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: 2014 was characterised by mild temperatures and frequent rainfall and a few weeks of high temperatures, a very solid vintage with good ripeness and acidity. Flowering began in June and summer was a combination of dry, wet and cold spells. Some regions saw some disease and Meunier in the Marne Valley didn’t have a great year and some of the Pinot Noir with its thinner skin made it more difficult for the red grapes. Harvest took place from 8th to 20th September. A year where it was necessary to select the red grapes carefully to maintain high quality. In general Chardonnay is the star of the vintage.

Tasting Note: On the nose, ‘Les Montjolys’ has aromas of white flowers, freshly baked bread and a touch of hazelnut. The palate is poised, with citrus fruit flavours, linden blossom and frangipane which linger on the long finish.

William Kelley
“Like its Les Chétillons counterpart, the 2014 Brut Blanc de Blancs Cuvée Spéciale Les Montjolys is also showing beautifully. Wafting from the glass with aromas of crisp green orchard fruit, freshly baked bread, Meyer lemon, bee pollen and white flowers, it's full-bodied, fleshy and layered, with an ample core of fleshy, vibrant fruit that's girdled by bright acids and complemented by a pretty pinpoint mousse. Textural and expansive, it's a touch richer and more giving than the more chiseled Chétillons.”
