Pierre Péters, nestled in the heart of Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, has garnered widespread acclaim for its exquisite Blanc de Blancs Champagnes. This 2008 Cuvée Spéciale 'Les Chetillons' embodies their philosophy, showcasing the pinnacle of Chardonnay expression from a revered Grand Cru site.

Rooted in Terroir:

Pierre Péters cultivates just over 19 hectares within the celebrated Côte des Blancs, with prime parcels in Mesnil-sur-Oger, Oger, Cramant, and Avize. These sun-drenched slopes, cradled by a chalky outcrop, offer natural water reserves and protection from prevailing winds. Sustainability reigns supreme, ensuring these precious vines flourish in harmony with nature.

Les Chetillons: A Grand Cru Revelation:

This single-vineyard gem, boasting three aged parcels in Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, whispers its signature minerality into every 100% Grand Cru Chardonnay grape. Reserved exclusively for exceptional vintages, the 2008 'Les Chetillons' captures the essence of this terroir in every meticulously crafted bottle.

Meticulous pressing extracts the finest Chardonnay essence, chosen for its signature minerality, citrus, and finesse. Small tank fermentations with precise temperature control and meticulous tracking by soil parcel ensure each wine's unique expression. Gentle aging on lees and slow, light-protected maturation craft a complex, tertiary character.

A Symphony of Flavors:

Shimmering with a pale gold hue, this Champagne awakens the senses with a fine and persistent mousse. Aromas of acacia, hawthorn, and peach intertwine with citrusy notes of orange zest and pear, followed by hints of creamy almond milk. As it breathes, delicate whispers of spice and dried flowers emerge, culminating in a lingering, ethereal chalkiness.
