For over forty years, Le Mesnil stood on the cusp of Grand Cru status, a distinction finally bestowed in 1985, despite being widely regarded as the premier village. The vineyards, situated at elevations ranging from 160 to 220 meters, yield the most refined champagnes known to the world. The unique Chardonnay clone found in this cru imparts a captivating bouquet, even when present in a small proportion within a cuvée. Mesnil's wines may initially display a reserved and acidic character in their youth, only to transform into a kaleidoscope of colors and sensational pleasures with age.

The Pierre Peters Cuvée de Réserve stands as a 100% Grand Cru Chardonnay Champagne, distinguished by its inherent palate complexity achieved through the incorporation of a minimum of 40% reserve wine in the blend. Initiated in 1988, the house's perpetual reserve, akin to the Soléra Method, boasts an amalgamation of over 20 vintage years, enriching its character.

 

"The wine is clear or pale with hints of green typical to the Chardonnay. The mousse is fine and regular with a pretty ribbon of strong bubbles. The first nose is both flowery and fruity, then comes notes of fresh nuts and fresh bread. In the finish there is citrus which brings a beautiful impression of smoothness and freshness. The attack is frank, associated with delicacy and roundness. The first impression is dominated with fresh white fruits (lemon and pear) and with flowers (acacia), followed by creamy notes. The finally is persistent on the citrus (candied grapefruit, tangerine and lemon) and minerality, bringing freshness and elegance to the wine."
