Reviews 96 points Wine Advocate "...bursting from the glass with a complex bouquet of ripe citrus fruit, beeswax, blanched almonds and praline, complemented by scents of iodine and a delicate top note of petrol. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, powerful and multidimensional, with a deep and concentrated core, plenty of structuring dry extract and lively acids, concluding with a long and saline finish.

About Pierre Peters
The uniqueness of their wines is owed to a distinct Chardonnay clone resulting from a generations-long mass selection. Paired with east-facing hillside vineyards and chalky soils, this yields wines of notable complexity, brimming with notes of exotic fruit, coffee, walnut, and butterscotch. The limited production "Cuvee Speciale Les Chetillons" is noteworthy among their offerings, a symbol of their exceptional craftsmanship.
Proprietor Rodolphe Péters, at the helm since 2008, has continued the tradition of producing sleek Champagnes. Their wines undergo malolactic fermentation, achieving a delicate balance of acidity and minerality. The blending process features a mix of vintage and reserve wines stored in an array of vessels, adding to the wine's distinct character.
Pierre Peters' Champagnes are not just meant for drinking; they are an essential addition to the discerning collector's cellar, promising an experience that evolves and deepens with age. With limited annual production, they encapsulate the allure of tradition, unique terroir, and skillful winemaking.
