    June 26, 2016 - From Magnum, 2011 base, disgorged November 2015. Very peachy, brioche, sourdough, creamy. Palate is very fine, light as silk on the palate. Feels very serious and has strong persistent acid. Really delicious and moreish.

    June 24, 2016 - HDH auction tasting at Tru; 6/24/2016-6/25/2016 (Chicago, IL): Pale and gentle nose, with lovely notes of pears and apples. Quite sweet. Crisp, with a touch of licorice on the back end, this is a pretty tasty rendition of champagne, if it does finish off a little bitter.

    June 23, 2016 - Crisp with apple and yeasty notes. Consistently good and a nice aperitif on our anniversary before heading out to dinner.

    June 17, 2016 - Wow. Vansinnigt mycket leverans för pengen. Gula äpplen, hög syra med ett stänk av kolatoner. En strimma tutti-frutti, men på ett bra sätt. En Champagne jag skulle överväga att använda till en lite kraftigare varmrätt, på låt säga kyckling.

    June 13, 2016 - Excellent. Well-balanced with impressive notes of apple, honey, and curd. Medium finish.

Terry Theise Estate Selections

  • By Terry Theise
    2011 Champagne Catalog, 6/1/2011 (link)

    (NV Pierre Péters "Cuvée de Réserve" Brut) ($62.00) The ’08-based wine, now shipping, is the best NV the estate has ever shown me, and surely the best since the amazing ’02-based NV. Though this wine is in principle a constantly refreshed solera (half is the new vintage and half the previous blend; Billiot among others does the same), and though the goal is to mitigate variations, I find variations anyway, which is just the way I like it.
    It’s disgorged 12/10 and has an absolutely rapturous perfume, as if someone entered the room toting some cologne; the palate while youthfully snippy, is strikingly flowery, with minerals playing a gauzy background chord, so exotic you think it was fermented with peonies and wisteria soaking in the juice. The oolong-y length is mind boggling.

    (NV Pierre Peters Blanc de Blancs Brut Cuvée de Réserve, Le Mesnil sur Oger, Champagne) If you haven’t already noticed, expect most Champagne prices to jump dramatically within the next year. Pierre Peters, a small grower producing grand cru Champagne of tête de cuvée quality, still provides good value. His reserve blanc de blancs (100% Chardonnay) features crisp acidity, balanced yeastiness, and great length. Importer Terry Theise introduced grower Champagne to the United States, and this is one of the pearls from his portfolio.
