Starting in 1858, the Pierre Peters domain began. At the time the fruit was sold off all to trading businesses. Fast forward to 1919, Camille Peters, the third generation at the time, begun to harvest, handle, and bottle the wine himself. In fact, he was one of the first in the region to do this himself; most growers sold their grapes. After 150 years of maintaining their traditional Blanc de Blanc Champagnes, a rosé was produced in 2009. Grower Champagne producer Pierre Péters has developed an international following as one of the best producers in Côte des Blancs. Today Pierre Peters is one of the largest producers of grower Champagne.
Pierre Peters has taken their iconic Cuvée de Réserve grower Champagne and aged it an extra year on the lees resulting in the 'Oubliee’. "Oublier" translates "to leave behind" in French referencing the extra time taken to produce this bottling. This cuvée originated Pierre Peters desire to prove that long maturation on the lees could contribute just as much to a wine as barrel maturation. The result is an expressive, rich, and creamy Blanc de Blancs paired with the racing acidity and concentration typical of the Réserve wine.
