The Pierre Péters Estate is situated in the heart of the "Côte des Blancs" in the village of Le Mesnil-sur-Oger. A family home for six generations, the estate has been producing Champagne Blanc de Blancs, Grand Cru, since 1919. With just over 18 hectares of Chardonnay, mainly located in Mesnil sur Oger, Oger, Avize and Cramant, the average age of the vineyards is 30 years and special care is taken to adapt cultivation methods for maintaining the health of the grapes. This technique ensures that the Champagne expresses a precise richness, subtlety and elegance unique to the terroir.
