    September 2, 2014 - Strong nose of lemon and fresh bread. Palate is yeasty, bready, and slightly cheesy, with powerful, cleansing acidity. Great aperitif.

  • BurgAndy wrote:

    September 1, 2014 - Drank the 7/13 disgorgement followed by a bottle of the 6/13 disgorgement. The former had refined, crisp fruit with a generous midpalate and lingering finish. The latter was noticeable closed in comparison, some subtle herbal notes amidst the tart white fruit. I preferred the 7/13 on this occasion. I'd hold the 6/13. Last bottle of each, the well is deep, will continue to buy and buy and buy. The epitome of a house champagne

    September 1, 2014 - 3/13 disgorgement, from magnum. Pretty young and tight but drinks like refined PP BdB. Less rough edges than from the 750mL. 2 mags left, I'd hold and let this juice evolve.

  • Sheila62 Likes this wine:

    August 31, 2014 - Drank from magnum. March 2013 disgorgement so 2007 vintage. As usual this is very good champagne. Very good minerality and chalkiness, and purity of fruit. Good structure with depth on the palate. One could drink this all night long..

  • BurgAndy wrote:

    August 25, 2014 - Found some more of the 8/12 disgorgement. Thought this bottle was a bit advanced on the nose but I was wrong when all was said and done. Fresh on the palate, white fruit, mineral, fine bead, great length, the acid and balance is there, has it all. Zingy but complex BdB. This wine just continues to amaze me and may be the champagne value of the century. (Dovetail, NYC)

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.
