The NV Etonnant Monsieur Victor, a blend of equal parts the best tank of 2011 Les Chétillons and the base of 2010 Reserve Oubliée aged on cork, is another impressive wine from Rodolphe Péters. Mineral and bright citrus notes abound in a Champagne that exudes class and distinction from the very first taste. It seems pretty obvious that the blend of components helped Péters get the most out of 2011. The Etonnant Monsieur Victor is gorgeous in every way. Disgorged: April 2018. 93 Points Antonio Galloni, Vinous November 2018.

Importer Notes
"Located in the Cote de Blancs in the village of Le-mesnil-sur-oger. These are blow-your mind Champagnes. Crystaline, jewel-like firmness and immense mealy depth give these a Krug-like profile nearly unique among Blanc de Blancs. "If Blanc de Blancs Champagne has something in common with Mosel wine in general, then these are like Saar wines, a concentration of the minerally essence of the type, and straining at the leash as though the fruit wanted to burst free and run at full gallop. I've described the wines as starched, for they have that crisp stiffness. Though not exceptionally high in acidity, they are exceptionally low in pH, which gives them their attack on the palate and their thrilling high notes of aroma." Terry Theise
