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: The 2016 vintage was not without its challenges. There was frost in late spring and very low temperatures in the vineyards, followed by a wet May, June and July, which increased the threat of disease. Thankfully August was warm and dry, which saved the crop, and harvest began on schedule in September. Fruit-forward, lush wines with vibrant acidity.

Technical Information:
Vineyards: 100% Grand cru | Le Mesnil, Oger, Cramant and Avize
Grape Varieties: 100% Chardonnay
Ageing: 4 years on the lees
Dosage: 5g/l
Disgorged: Febuary 2021
Drink: Now to 2028

Tasting Note: Luminous pale gold. On the nose, delicate floral notes interlace with dried fruits, citrus and almond. There is a soft mineral influence that adds both complexity and elegance. The palate is well-balanced and stylishly elegant, with delicate notes of lemon and stone fruit, tangerine and toasted bread. The finish is persistent with candied citrus flavors and a chalky minerality that adds a twist of salinity.

Antonio Galloni
“The 2016 Brut Cuvée Millésime L'Esprit is laced with the essence of tropical fruit, exotic white flowers and lemon confit. Intensely perfumed and radiant, the 2016 offers tons of near and medium-term appeal. This is an especially racy, aromatic, weightless edition of the Esprit. Dosage is 4.5-5.5 grams per liter. Disgorged: February, 2021. ”
