Pierre Péters, 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, in the heart of the Côte des Blancs, and was one of the first growers to start selling their own champagnes in 1919. Sixth-generation grower, 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 1988, inspired by the Soléra Method.
This 100% Grand Cru Chardonnay non-vintage Champagne has an inherent complexity on the palate thanks to the addition of at least 40% reserve wine to the blend.
The Cuvée de Réserve is pale gold in colour with a fine mousse and vivacious bubbles. The nose is powerful, displaying saline and flint aromas at first, followed by white fruits. The palate has great energy and an elegant texture, with vibrant notes of hazelnuts and fresh almonds.
