Pierre Peters Cuvee Speciale Les Chetillons 2005 (93WE/93AG) (750ML)
91 WA 93 WS 93 IWC
"The 2005 Brut Cuvée Speciale Blanc de Blancs Les Chetillons from Pierre Peters is beautifully open and expressive, which is quite unusual in young Chetillons. That is good news for those who want to catch a glimpse of one of Champagne’s most exciting wines. This is about as good as it gets in what turned out to be a very challenging vintage in Champagne...93" AG 07/13 "Péters’ 2005 Brut Blanc de Blancs Cuvée Spéciale Les Chétillons – based on parcels of old sélection massale vines in a single lieu-dît – reflects a vintage that, as he puts it, “was on the limit of burnt [brûlée] fruit.” The nose here strikingly suggests sautéed mushrooms on toast, along with hints of citrus oils, Latakia tobacco, smoky black tea, and the salinity that happily, mouthwateringly infiltrates the palate. Nutty piquancy adds to the savor of a sustained and intriguingly fungal, smoky and toasty finish. I would be inclined to enjoy this over the coming year or two. It should reveal fascinating potential at table. Hints of chalk, white truffle, musk and sweat scent ...91" WA 11/13 "A ripe and opulent Champagne with intense white and yellow fruit flavors. The wine is full bodied, with just a touch of toast to show approaching maturity. This is a wonderfully open and generous wine. ...93" WE 05/13 "Bright yellow-gold. Heady aromas of fresh nectarine, lemon, honeysuckle and ginger are complemented by deeper notes of smoky lees and brioche. Bright citrus zest and quince flavors give way to richer melon and pit fruits with air while maintaining impressive verve and cut. Shows a chewy, dense character without coming off as heavy. Really clings to the palate on the back end, finishing spicy and quite long. I'd have no guilt about polishing off a bottle right now....93" IWC 11/12 "Aromatic, with a fine, creamy mousse, delicate acidity and well-meshed flavors of fresh-cut quince, dried apricot, biscuit, blanched almond, honey and fleur de sel. Offers a fresh, lingering, spice-tinged finish...93" WS 11/12
