The Story

Les Chétillons is situated in the Grand Cru village of Le Mesnil sur Oger and enjoys an almost perfect aspect. Three parcels of vines, ranging from 40 to 70 years of age, yield the grapes used to make this legendary cuvée. These vines, impacted by the quality of the terroir and our mass selection practices, provide the definitive statement of the particular style of this village, a style which resides in mineral power, incredible purity, and a capacity to age.

Dosage: 4 to 5g/L

Written Notes

Nervously close to perfect. I can’t think of a thing I would add or take away to this complete wine. It is walking on a tightrope of acidity, tension, expansive minerality and restrained fruit. There is finesse and power here at once. Devastatingly, my one and only bottle. But worth it. INCREDIBLE.

"2008 Pierre Peters ‘Les Chetillons’ Blanc de Blancs

“From a small producer in the Grand Cru village of Le Mesnil-sur-Oger comes this wonderful, rare, powerful wine. For those not familiar with the wines of Pierre Peters, you can expect Blanc de Blancs (100% Chardonnay) of incredible length, purity and finesse. We had this wine over dinner at a Chinese restaurant on Gouger street in Adelaide last Friday, and it was possibly one of the most enjoyable champagnes I’ve had. It has a ‘shapely’ nose: a kelpiness, a chalky character… salty, briny. Crushed oyster shell, preserved lemon, a clap of chalk (from the famous soils of Le Mesnil), green walnut, full of minerality: this is alive. It glistens. Contrary to common belief about Les Chetillons, it is not a single vineyard, but a blend of 3 adjacent vineyards. This has richness and depth, but delicacy as well. 2008 was one of the great vintages – if you see any, my advice is to buy them on spec – this is a gift to the champagne lover, as was 2002, as was 1996 before it. At $200 it might not be everyday drinking… but at 99 points I’m going to do my best to track down another bottle."
