Reviews 95 points Wine Advocate "Wafting from the glass with aromas of lemon oil, confit citrus, pastry cream and warm bread, the 2012 Brut Blanc de Blancs Cuvee Speciale Les Chetillons is full-bodied, muscular and concentrated, with a tight-knit core, racy acids and a long, searingly chalky finish. (WK)" 94 points John Gilman "The bouquet jumps from the glass in a ripe and pure constellation of pear, fresh almond, chalky minerality, brioche, white flowers and a gently smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, focused and still nicely tensile, with a marvelous core of fruit, excellent mineral undertow and grip, impeccable balance, frothy mousse and a long, complex and still climbing finish. (JG)"

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.
