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 Domaine also owns three hectares of vineyards near Sezanne and one in the Cote des Bars.The Chardonnay comes from Les Musettes, a climate in Le Mesnil, while the Meunier comes from Cumieres and Dammery. Fermentation took place in stainless steel and remained in tank on their lees (with regular tastings) until the assemblage, when the Chardonnay was blended with a Rose de Saignee. Following the second fermentation, the wine aged for a minimum of six years on lees before disgorgement.

Tasting Note: Delicate pink hues, with fine, persistent bubbles, the Cuvee Rose for Albane is full of freshness and purity. On the nose, fresh strawberry, raspberry and gooseberry mingle with delicate floral notes. Aromas of pink grapefruit and pomelo follow, bringing a beautiful impression of smoothness and elegance. These notes carry through on the palate, and creamier characters appear. Just the right amount of sweetness allows the vibrant fruit flavours to shine, but does not mask the chalky minerality of Le Mesnil Chardonnay that emerges with vigour on the finish.

Expert Reviews
93/100
Antonio Galloni
“The NV Rosé for Albanne (base 2016) is absolutely wonderful. In this release, the Rosé is a bit deeper and fleshier than it often is. Crushed red berry fruit, blood orange, mint, cinnamon and pomegranate all take shape in this resonant Rosé that is so deeply delicious and satisfying. Dosage is 7-8 grams per liter. Disgorged: January, 2021.”

William Kelley
“Based on the 2016 vintage and disgorged in January 2021, the new release of Péters's NV Brut Rosé for Albane is already showing very well, bursting with aromas of plum, peonies, orange rind, pomelo and warm spices. Medium to full-bodied, pillow and vinous, it's deep and seamless, its fleshy core of fruit framed by lively acids and animated by a pearly mousse, concluding with a long and sapid finish. Seamless and complex, this stands out as a particularly good release of this bottling.”
