2008 Pierre Péters Champagne Grand Cru Cuvée Speciale Blanc de Blancs Les Chetillons Chardonnay

Fragrant. Volume, deep and complex with hidden potential. Apple tart on the palate.

Supposed to be more ready to drink (compared to '05 tasted in parallel) and crowd pleaser, but I personally disagree. The wine is closed - very young. Needs cellaring for more years to come - should improve.

2008 is a Grand vintage.
Single Grand Cru vineyard, Chardonnay exclusive as all the wines of Pierre Peters. 40-50 yrs old vines which is truly 'vieilles vignes' for Champagne heavily suffered during war

    You are absolutely right, Pierre Peters have exclusively Chardonnay vines.
    As for Rose he gets Saignee Pinot Meunier exclusively from Geoffroy. And the assemblage of Rose is 85% Chardannay and 15% PM.
