Pierre Peters L'Etonnant Monsieur Victor Edition MK09 N.V.
Here in its debut vintage, the NV L'Etonnant Monsieur Victor is a blend of 50% Réserve Oubliée and 50% 2009 Chetillons. The flavors are rich, bold and authoritative throughout. Lemon confit, brioche, slate, hazelnut, apricot, honey, chamomile and wild flowers are all fused together. Ripe and flamboyant, yet with superb detail, the debut release of the Monsieur Victor is terrific. It will be interesting to follow the evolution of this cuvée over the next few releases. Disgorged December, 2015. Dosage is 4.2 grams per liter.

The NV L'Étonnant Monsieur Victor Edition MK09 is the first release of a newly created top Chardonnay cuvée that blends the best tanks of Les Chétillons with the best vats of the family's perpetual reserve (solera). Based on 2009 and disgorged in December 2015, this Blanc des Blancs offers an intense and ripe nose that indicates a lovely maturity of ripe and baked apples with a touch of cinnamon. Full-bodied, round, intense and fresh on the palate, this is a very pure, lean and mineral, but also fruity Champagne with a very long and complex finish. A simply great new Champagne whose artistic label is very cool.
