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 code associated with each edition of these cuvées is in reference to the artist that Victor deeply admires and parodied (MK for Murakami)

Weather: 2014 was characterised by mild temperatures and frequent rainfall and a few weeks of high temperatures. On paper it looks like a very solid vintage with good ripeness and acidity. Full flowering began in June. 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 there was a need to do a lot of careful picking and sorting of the red grapes to maintain the high quality. In general Chardonnay is the star of the vintage with some super good Blanc de Blancs starting to appear on the market. There will be some good champagnes from 2014 and exceptional Blanc de Blancs.

Tasting Note: Brilliant gold in appearance, the cuvee has a very fine mousse and a persistent ribbon of bubbles. The nose is characterized by a mixture of rich, yellow fruit and acacia flower that evolve to give notes of saffron, citrus rind and hazelnut in the glass. The palate is dense yet smooth with a wonderful dimension of flavor, marrying layers of sweet spices, grapefruit, Mirabelle plum and fresh hazelnut.

Expert Reviews
95/100
Antonio Galloni
“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. ”
