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. (SR)
The NV Etonnant Monsieur Victor is a blend of equal parts the best tank of 2011 Les Chétillons and the base of 2010 Reserve Oubliée in a production of 1,500 bottles. Delicate and beautifully lifted in the glass, the Monsieur Victor has a lot to offer. The candied lemon, wild flower, honey, pastry, hazelnut and mint nuances are finely-knit in this very pretty, expressive Champagne. I would prefer to drink the Monsieur Victor on the early side. For now, the wine does not show any vintage 2011 awkwardness, but I would not push my luck, either. Rodolphe Péters told me it is his desire to have a NV wine sit at the peak of his estate’s quality level. Disgorged November 2017. Dosage is 4 grams per liter. (AG)
A delicate, finely woven Champagne, with apple blossom and spice notes on the nose and subtle flavors of poached pear, biscuit, chalk and lemon pâte de fruit riding the satinlike mousse. Fresh and graceful, with a lasting, minerally finish. Drink now through 2022. (AN)
Youthful nose, hints of banana and mango adding an exoticism; the palate is fuller, equally interesting, refreshing and pure with assured bubbles, the creamy biscuity notes subservient to a minerally, chalky substrata.
