Starting in 1858, the Pierre Peters domain began. At the time the fruit was sold off all to trading businesses. Fast forward to 1919, Camille Peters, the third generation at the time, begun to harvest, handle, and bottle the wine himself. In fact, he was one of the first in the region to do this himself; most growers sold their grapes. After 150 years of maintaining their traditional Blanc de Blanc Champagnes, a rosé was produced in 2009. Grower Champagne producer Pierre Péters has developed an international following as one of the best producers in Côte des Blancs. Today Pierre Peters is one of the largest producers of grower Champagne.
"Les Chétillons" is the name of the estate's special vintage Champagne which refers to a beautiful "lieu-dit", or a place found in the Grand Cru village of le Mesnil sur Oger. Divided into three plots of 45+ year old vines, each parcel is vinified separately and blended to produce a single vineyard vintage. All the power and the minerality of the Mesnil's calcareous soil is expressed in this wine produced since 1971. With its reputation grown world wine, Les Chétillons is now synonymous as one of the most beautiful pieces of land in Champagne.
