Champagne Pierre Péters


The essence of Blanc de Blancs Champagnes

The Pierre Péters estate, - situated in the heart of the "Côte des Blancs" in the village of Le Mesnil sur Oger, has been a family house for six generations and has produced Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs Champagnes since 1919. One of the first "grower" champagne makers.

The house was established by Camille Péters in 1919 under the same name. After his sudden death in 1944, the first champagnes under the Pierre Péters label are released in 1946 when Pierre, the eldest son of Camille, took over the estate. After Pierre, his son Francois managed the house until 2008, when the very talented Rodolpe Péters was taking control.

Le Mesnil sur Oger

For more than forty years, a mere percentage point separated Le Mesnil from Grand Cru status, and it wasn’t until 1985 that the promotion came, even though many saw the village as the best of them all. Those grapes which grow in a belt at a height of 160-220 meters provide the most elegant champagnes the world has tasted. The chalk soil, the exposure, the microclimate and the work of the vignerons make Le Mesnil sur Oger one of the most special terroirs in the world especially suited for Chardonnay.

About the estate

The family holds about 19 ha in the Côte des Blancs growing exclusively Chardonnay. Most of the parcels are located in Le Mesnil and some are in Oger, Avize and Cramant, all Grand Cru villages. The average age of the wines is about 30 years and they are replanted by massale selection. The Cru of Les Chétillon in Le Mesnil sur Oger is one of the most revered vineyards in Champagne and one of the most important to Pierre Péters as well, where they own three plots of old wines.

The work in the cellar is immaculate in order to showcase the terroir perfectly. The champagnes are marked by their fine acidity and prominent minerality.
