Pierre Peters Brut Cuvee Speciale Les Chetillons 2016


Sold Out

“The 2016 Brut Cuvée Spéciale Les Chétillons is an explosive, heady wine. It is, to me, a quintessentially modern Chétillons that offers plenty of Mesnil energy, yet also has more than enough fruit to avoid any feeling of the austerity that once characterized these wines. Crushed rocks, slate, mint, lemon peel and white flowers are all beautifully delineated throughout. The decision to delay the release of this wine by a year going forward seems very well judged. Today, the 2016 is showing so much better than it did last year. Dosage is 4 grams per liter. Disgorged: July 2023. Drinking window: 2024-2036. 96 points

Pierre Péters is among the grower estates that have moved into what is almost a new category of grower estates with a global brand presence. The wines are very fine, as usual. I was especially impressed with the L’Esprit de 2019 and the 2016 Les Chétillons, which have really come along over the last year.”
