Reviews 96 points Wine Advocate "Unfurling in the glass with scents of citrus oil, toasted almonds, buttery pastry, freshly baked bread and crisp yellow apple, it's full-bodied, layered and incisive, with superb concentration and a taut, chiseled profile. Long and penetrating, it concludes with an intensely saline finish. (WK)" 97 points Vinous "...captures all of the intense ripeness and bright acidity that make this vintage so exceptional. A wine of cut and brilliance, the 2013 will thrill readers who enjoy Blanc de Blancs. Citrus, marzipan, slate, crushed rocks and floral notes pulse with tremendous energy. Readers will have to be patient with the 2013. It is a total knock-out. Wow! (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.
