Pierre Peters Brut Cuvee Speciale Les Chetillons 2014

£224.75

“The 2014 Cuvée Spéciale Les Chétillons is fabulous. The 2014 is not as obvious as years like 2012 or 2013, but it presents a youthfully austere, classic personality that is absolutely beguiling. Readers will have to be patient here. There is certainly a lot to look forward to. The 2014 Les Chétillons is a Blanc de Blancs that sizzles with Mesnil tension and energy. Dosage is 3.5-4.5 grams per liter. Disgorged: May, 2021. Drink: 2024-2034. 97 points

Pierre Péters is reference point for the Côtes des Blancs and Le Mesnil-sur-Oger. Much of the attention naturally goes to the flagship Les Chétillons and some of the newer bottlings, like the L’Étonnant Monsieur Victor and Réserve Oubliée, but I find myself often reaching for the L’Esprit, which always conveys the essence of a vintage, but at a more approachable price. Rodolphe Péters’ Champagnes are distinguished by their combination of Mesnil tension and fruit depth. A recent magnum of the 2008 Les Chétillons showed that interplay to great effect.”
