The Champagne market has never been as flush with as many diverse styles and exciting new projects as it is today. We love unearthing great bottles from cutting edge producers and game-changing new cuvées from established houses as much as any Champagne lover, but there is always something satisfying about returning to an old classic. It’s particularly satisfying when that old classic is more scintillatingly delicious and devastatingly complete than it’s ever been. Ladies and Gentlemen, we give you the new release of Pierre Péters’ NV Blanc de Blancs, Cuvée de Réserve.
This is a wine we bring in year after year, and if it seems like it is gaining in depth and complexity with every new release, that’s because it is. Rodolphe Péters uses a “perpetual reserve” to put this wine together. This involves blending 50% of the current harvest (2014 in the case of the wine we have today) with stocks of reserve wine that contain 21 different vintages at this point, dating back to 1988. Every year the reserve stock gains another layer from a newly added vintage. There’s certainly a consistency in how the wine is made, but each release has its own unique character.
The current release, which spent more than two years on its lees and was disgorged in June this year, is a stone-cold stunner. The wine shows all the telltale fresh toastiness of all the best Blanc de Blancs spliced with ripe and exuberant fruit on the nose. On the palate, the wine hits with a touch of citrus, turns slightly savory and finishes seamlessly, with excellent snap, silky bubbles and serious persistence. Terry Theise, Péters’ importer, describes his wines as “starched” and that palate-cleansing sensation seems especially spot on with this wine. It simply demands a second sip. As mouth-watering as this is now, it will also generously reward some time in the cellar if you can resist it. We’re convinced great NV Champagnes can age every bit as well as their vintage counterparts if properly stored, and this would be a perfect example to prove our theory. Did we mention it’s only $54.95/bottle?
Although we’ve historically considered this to be a staple wine at the shop, because of how sought-after it’s become, our stock will barely last us to the new year this time. You’d be smart to go ahead and stash some away in the meantime.
The bottles below are offered on a first come, first served basis. Follow the links below to purchase on our site or call/email us if you need some assistance.
We’re also pleased to announce some special holiday hours here at the shop. We will be open from Noon to 8PM every Saturday from now until the end of the year, which includes December 2nd, 9th, 16th, 23rd and 30th. We’ll also be open on two special Sundays from Noon to 8PM: Dec. 24th (Christmas Eve) and Dec 31st (New Year’s Eve). Don’t want you to be left with any empty glasses over the holidays!
Cheers,

Although these magnums share the same exact label as the flagship Cuvée de Réserve, the wine inside is something else entirely. This years release of magnums contains 2012 L’Esprit Millésimée. A little insider handshake for those in the know and an especially rare bird.

Same story for this 3L as for the magnums above, except this contains the 2010 vintage of L’Esprit. Run, don’t walk.
