Pierre Peters is certainly one of the most famous Blanc de Blancs grower producers. Treated like a rockstar in the American and Scandinavian sommelier scene, his wines are highly sought after. His prestige Blanc de Blancs cuvee coming from the single vineyard Les Chetillons are always pre-sold before arrival.
We are lucky to have a handful of bottles of these Les Chetillon Oenotheque in Singapore! We are the only wine merchant in the world aside one in America that has this wine!
The Oenotheque Les Chetillons bottles are different from regular Les Chetillons by being degorged later than the regular release, and being sealed with a natural cork while in the cellar, which gives a different maturation process. (Normally the champagne bottles are sealed with crown cap.) Rodolphe Peters believes that natural cork makes for better integration of the mousse, which becomes softer, and the champagne gets more character of hazelnuts, almonds and dried fruit. The 2000 vintage is the first release of the Œnothèque version of Les Chétillons! This 2002 vintage have better ageing potential that the 2000 vintage that is already drinking beautifully now.
