Pierre Peters Champagne L'Etonnant Monsieur Victor Edition Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs NV Brut 750ml
94/100 The Wine Advocate; Stephan Reinhardt , Jun 2016
The NV L'Étonnant Monsieur Victor Edition MK09 is the first release of a newly created top Chardonnay cuvée that blends the best tanks of Les Chétillons with the best vats of the family's perpetual reserve (solera). Based on 2009 and disgorged in December 2015, this Blanc des Blancs offers an intense and ripe nose that indicates a lovely maturity of ripe and baked apples with a touch of cinnamon. Full-bodied, round, intense and fresh on the palate, this is a very pure, lean and mineral, but also fruity Champagne with a very long and complex finish. A simply great new Champagne whose artistic label is very cool.
Rodolphe Péters holds 18 hectares of vineyards predominantly in the grand cru of Les Mesnil-sur-Oger ,but also in Oger, Avize and Cramant, has launched a new cuvée called L'Etonnant Monsieur Victor Edition MK.09. Based on 2009, this is a spectacular blend of Les Chétillons and perpetual reserve wines from his solera. Equipped with an artistic label (which comes out much better on the magnum), this is fascinating Le Mesnil Grand Cru.
