About the Terroir of 'Les Mesnil Sur Oger' village
An exceptional and emblematic terroir, bringing together two complementary localities, 'Chétillon' and 'Chétillon de Haut' Their assembly reveals their respective typicality, between smoothness, elegance and marine minerality.
"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 cru has a very Special Chardonnay clone which gives a penetrating bouquet even when the actual content in a cuvée is small. Mesnil's wines are often shy and acidic when young only to explode in a burst of colour and sensational pleasures." Peter Liem
A family-owned estate in the Grand Cru region of Côte des Blancs, brothers Clément and Antoine are the 5th generation of winemakers in the Pertois-Lebrun family. After pursuing separate career paths, the brothers felt it was their responsibility to come back to Champagne and take over the family business.
“Understanding and respect as we work the vineyard, sincerity and authenticity as we create the wine”. These values are the foundation of Pertois-Lebrun. The brothers believe in preserving the naturality and individuality of their 44 Chardonnay plots through biodynamic and organic vinification practices and low-intervention winemaking methods. The House has been certified as High Environmental Quality and Sustainable Winegrowing in Champagne since 2019. Through these efforts the true nature of the terroir is allowed to express itself and the soul of each champagne is revealed.
