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. L’Esprit is made using fruit which comes from four single vineyards located in Le Mesnil, Oger, Cramant and Avize.

Weather: 2013 was characterised by a particularly late growing cycle. The never-ending winter was followed by a very cool, late spring. we had to wait until the start of July for flowering to begin – something we hadn’t seen in Champagne for quite some time! Fortunately, summer was glorious with plenty of sunshine, record temperatures and very low rainfall, ideal for the ripening of the Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays. the temperatures were cool for the October harvest and the resulting wines are elegant and fresh – the signs of a “classic” vintage.

Expert Reviews
93/100
Antonio Galloni
“The 2013 Brut Blanc de Blancs L'Esprit is a terrific example of a year in which both ripeness and acidities were elevated. Rich and sumptuous on the palate, with striking layers of nuance throughout, the 2013 has so much to offer. The combination of textural breadth and tension is utterly compelling. And that, in essence, is what makes 2013 such a fascinating vintage. Another few years in bottle will help soften some of the edges. Dosage is 4.5 grams per liter. Disgorged: July, 2018.”

Stephan Reinhardt
“The 2013 Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Millésime L’Esprit de 2013 has a clear, fine, fresh and precise bouquet of white flowers, spices and citrus fruits—lemon peel, lemongrass and even a touch of rhubarb. Dense and intense on the palate, with lots of energy and expression, this is a well-structured, highly elegant and finessed, remarkably pure and fresh 2013 with a long, complex, greatly tensioned and salty finish.”
