1998 Pierre Péters Champagne Grand Cru Cuvée Speciale Blanc de Blancs Les Chetillons
- Champagne Grand Cru
Community Tasting Notes 40
January 1, 2016 - This bottle didnt "pop" much as the cork was opened, and proved too oxidative to be pleasant. No one finished a glass. In hindsight, I probably should have opened sometime back

November 22, 2014 - Golden hue, this is rich, honeyed brioched, a touch oxidative, but just a glorious mature champagne that is akin to drinking a classic Chassagne-Montrachet. Good depth, sensuous texture, complex, interesting, at point tonight. I'd drink soon.

June 11, 2013 - Wonderful and fruity style. Not a complex and complicated wine, but never the less, it's very charming. Lots of fruit but very little acid. Hazelnuts, caramel, dow and toffee. And of course citrus and melon.

(Pierre Péters Champagne Grand Cru Cuvée Speciale Blanc de Blancs Les Chetillons) Very reserved nose; tasty, high acidity, rock salt and mineral, almost steely with good grip; long finish 91+ pts.
