Very few champagnes more eloquently articulate their terroirs than those of Pierre Peters. On my first encounter with the young Rodolphe Peters, three hours of exploring the fruits of three decades left me mesmerised by the remarkable capacity of the chardonnay vine to extract the salty minerality of the Cotes de Blancs' finest grand crus and preserve it in its wines for time eternal. I left with the realisation of another dimension to champagne, one in which minerality assumes a personality all of its own. And I discovered Les Chetillons, the Le Montrachet of Le Mesnil-sur-Oger. 60% curent vintage, 40% reserve solera from 18 vintages, grand Cru Cotes de Blancs, 6-7 g/L dosage: DIAM closure.
