Pierre Peters Les Chetillons Cuvee Speciale Blanc de Blanc 2013
The Pierre Peters Les Chetillons Cuvee Speciale Blanc de Blanc 2013 is a remarkable Champagne crafted from 100% Chardonnay grapes sourced from the prestigious Les Chetillons vineyard. This exceptional wine presents a bouquet of white flowers, green apple, and citrus zest, with subtle hints of brioche and chalky minerality. The palate is lively and well-balanced, showcasing flavors of lemon, green apple, and a touch of almond. The wine's vibrant acidity, delicate mousse, and persistent finish make it a truly exquisite choice for special occasions and discerning palates. Robert Parker (Wine Advocate) - The 2013 Brut Blanc de Blancs Cuvée Spéciale Les Chétillons is almost painfully tightly wound today, but what rewards it will offer for the patient! 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. This 2013 vintage, the region's last October harvest, increasingly seems like a vintage that harks back to a past era, and any readers who appreciate classically balanced Champagnes that blossom after two decades' bottle age will want to consider laying down some of this beautiful Les Chétillons.
