Had this in late 2019, this is a new batch, a Fav! Rodolphe Péters took over the reins of this venerable estate in the southern Côte des Blancs in 2008, becoming the 4th generation to lead since the estate was founded in 1919, under the name Camille Péters. 100% Chardonnay, Crisp, fine mousse with steady flow of bubbles. Citrus, and biscuit aromas. Fresh fruit flavors of peach, apples and lemons, smooth and dry. Long mineral finish ending with elegance. Nice! Consistent quality! — 9 months ago
Borgueils for me are like cru Beaujolais- joyous, vibrant & low tannins. Wines to make you smile. This has red & black currants, like Ribena, which for any Brits out there, is one of those delicious flavor profiles I just adore. Less on the pencil shavings here & more of the Ribena. — 2 years ago

Always a delicious cuvee. 2014 base this time, disgorged 2017. Cool, airy, chalky nose, with a good dose of pastry-like autolytic notes. Its got great presence on the palate with proper fruit intensity - green apples, bosc pear, apricot. Finishes long and saline. Laser beam acidity, but brilliantly balanced with the dosage. Bravo, Rodolphe. A powerful cuvee, without any undue weight! — 2 years ago
