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.
A sharp selection of 4 top parcels of the most beautiful crus of the Cote des Blancs (Le Mesnil, Avize,
Cramant, Oger), blended to about 20% of the best of our Perpetual Reserve.
This Cuvee age at least 36 months on the lees before disgorgement.
On the nose, the Grande Réserve has bright aromas of white peach, citrus fruits and a delicate floral note. The palate is generous with complex flavours of white fruits, tangerine and grilled hazelnuts which are superbly balanced by a vein of acidity which lifts the saline finish.
