12 hectares of prime vineyard in the best site of Le Mesnil has produced an extraordinary blanc de blanc champagne. Scintillating purity and power of fruit,finesse, minerality and complexity thanks to the base reserve wine from 1988 also enriched with more than 20 different vintages. The terroirs of Le Mesnil are on show revealing the remarkable capacity of the chardonnay vine to extract the gorgeous minerality and tang of the Cotes de Blancs’ finest grand crus. "Very few champagnes more eloquently articulate their terroirs than those of Pierre Peters. On my first encounter with the young Rodolphe Peters, three hours of exploring the fruits of three decades left me mesmerised by the remarkable capacity of the chardonnay vine to extract the salty minerality of the Cotes de Blancs’ finest grand crus and preserve it in its wines for time eternal. I left with the realisation of another dimension to champagne, one in which minerality assumes a personality all of its own. And I discovered Les Chetillons, the Le Montrachet of Le Mesnil-sur-Oger" - TYSON STELZER

Antonio Galloni

A precise, crystalline wine, the NV Brut Cuvée de Réserve is the perfect wine with which to explore the Péters Champagnes. Lemon peel white, flowers and slate are super-expressive throughout in a Champagne that impresses with its finely-sculpted personality and energy. The Cuvée de Réserve is quite powerful, but never heavy. Slightly tropical overtones add the final shades of nuance. The Cuvée de Réserve draws on fruit sources outside Mesnil. It remains one of the best values in artisan Champagne.

This is delicate and precise, with a very fine texture and lightly chalky finish
