Pierre Peters Reserve Oubliee Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Champagne
The NV Brut Réserve Oubliée (base 2015 ) marries freshness, tension and the complexity that emerges from the perpetual reserve in this blend. Wonderfully complex and layered, with striking aromatic presence, the Réserve Oubliée has so much going on. Marzipan, dried flowers, mint, lemon confit and spice build in the resonant, creamy finish. Dosage is 4.5-5.5 grams per liter. Disgorged: December, 2020. Drink 2021 - 2030.
Antonio Galloni's Vinous (Nov 2021)
The NV Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Réserve Oubliée is a blend of the best reserve wines from three different vessels: concrete, stainless steel and a 45-hectoliter oak vat from Franz Stockinger in Austria. The "forgotten reserve" shows a complex bouquet with bright and elegant fruit intertwined with notes of nuts, mocha and a touch of smoked speck. Aged sous liège (under natural cork), this is a very pure, fresh, fine, highly complex and energetic Champagne with a long, salty finish. A fascinating example and proof that top quality is also possible with nothing but reserve wines. Disgorged in November 2017 with a dosage of four grams per liter. Tasted at the domaine in April 2018.
Stephan Reinhardt - Wine Advocate (September 2018)
Leesy pastry dough and marzipan notes are an aromatic entry for this creamy, layered Champagne, leading to flavors of baked plum, kumquat and anise. A subtle streak of smoky mineral and vivid acidity define the mouthwatering finish. Drink now through 2025.
