Reviews 95 points Wine Advocate "...a lovely wine that offers up aromas of freshly baked bread, citrus oil, green apple, warm biscuits and white flowers. It's medium to full-bodied, satiny and enveloping, with the same incisive, chalky spine that characterizes Les Chetillons, but it has more finesse and less youthful austerity. It's a lovely addition to the range. (WK)" 96 points Vinous "Ample and explosive, with tremendous backing energy, the Montjolys has so much going on. Orange marmalade, spice, butter, hazelnut and lemon confit are front and center. More than anything else, the Les Montjolys possesses tons of breadth and resonance, not to mention considerable character. (AG)"

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.
