About this Item

2004 Cuvée Spéciale Les Chétillons Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Brut
2 (1 x 2) 750ml

Champagne Pierre Péters is one of the most highly respected champagne growers in the village of Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, in the heart of the Côte des Blancs. Fourth generation winemaker Rodolphe Péters crafts champagne that is both delicious in their youth, but also make for “excellent candidates for long ageing, developing a wonderful complexity and depth over time”, writes UK’s Decanter magazine. Originally founded in 1919 under the name Camille Péters, the name Péters is synonymous with Le Mesnil-sur-Oger; with nearly three-quarters of the estate’s vineyard holdings located there. The estate aims for environmental sustainability in its viticulture, avoiding pesticides and herbicides.

Critics Ratings

‘The 2004 Brut Blanc de Blancs Cuvée Spéciale Les Chétillons was showing especially well in this tasting, soaring from the glass with aromas of dried citrus fruits, oyster shell, wheat toast and plenty of nutty, smoky autolytic top notes. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, layered and impressively muscular and concentrated for the vintage, with chalky dry extract and a long, searingly mineral finish. While this is a racy Chétillon, the magic of bottle age means that it is also becoming quite rich and enveloping, without losing its wonderfully incisive Mesnil backbone.’ - William Kelley, Wine Advocate, 96/100 (Aug 2019)
