Montjolys Magnum: 2013 Pierre Péters Blanc de Blancs Mesnil Grand Cru

As good as the Chétillons is in 2013, the 2013 Brut Blanc de Blancs Cuvée Spéciale Les Montjolys is even better. In fact, it is the single most impressive Champagne I have ever tasted from Rodolphe Péters. Deep, rich and pliant, the 2013 possesses tremendous depth to play off the searing, bright acids of this late ripening harvest. -Antonio Galloni, 98 pts

 This is a RARE magnum opportunity here. Montjolys is a single vineyard wine coming from 7 small parcels vinified separately with some going through malo.  Since the site has a bit more clay and deeper soil, the wine is powerful and opulent without losing its tension and acidity. I loved the delicacy of 2013 over 2012 with less ripe fruit expression, more precise acidity, and purity.  I much prefer the 2013 over 2012 =) - Daniel

The single-vineyard ‘Montjolys’ made its debut in 2012, and the 2013 is a stunning sophomore showing.  Tasting it alongside Rudolph’s flagship ‘Les Chétillons’ is fascinating, as ‘Montjolys’ shares the same vitality and chalky minerality, yet presents as notably more powerful and with a deeper, more textural personality. Given the proximity of these neighboring sites, the differences in their wines are striking and compellingly narrate the influence of terroir in a region where process often obscures a real sense of place. I just love how this ’13 marries finesse and tension with an almost decadent richness. - Jason

Today we present very limited availability of the instant classic “Les Montjolys” in its second vintage and en magnum. 100% Chardonnay as you'd expect from this vineyard in Grand Cru village Les Mesnil sur Oger. Lucky number seven for the parcels that go into the cuvée, of which only 10% of the best juice from pressing is used. A rarity in 750s, in magnum this is the only availability in the US.
