Champagne Pierre Peters Les Chétillons 2013

Champagne, FranceRodolphe Péters took over the reins of this venerable estate in the southern Côte des Blancs in 2008, becoming the fourth generation to lead since the estate was founded in 1919, under the name Camille Péters. Today, Rodolphe holds 18 hectares of vineyards, predominantly in the grand cru of Les Mesnil-sur-Oger. Péters owns small holdings in several other grand crus (Oger, Avize and Cramant) but Les Mesnil-sur-Oger is where 45 of the 63 parcels he farms are located, and this special chardonnay comes from 3 parcels in the Les Chétillons vineyard there. Sleek and narrow, like all of their wines, this streams green apple, lemon along a very chalky base, finishing with a smack of lemon, and lingering salinity. Very finessed and elegant now, and will continue to be in your cellar.Tasted: 22 November 2020Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 160.00 private wine shops Producer: Champagne Pierre PetersDistributors: International Cellars Inc.
