The history of the Pertois Lebrun Champagne

The Pertois Lebrun House is located in the commune of Cramant, one of the most famous villages on the Côte des Blancs. Pertois Lebrun is a family business where traditions and ancestral know-how meet.
The history of the House dates back to the early 1900s, when the family began to develop and market their own Champagne wine. However, it was not until 1955, after the union of Paul Pertois, a winegrower from Cramant, and Françoise Lebrun, a winegrower from Mesnil-sur-Oger, that the Pertois Lebrun brand was created.
Since then, Pertois Lebrun has been passed on from generation to generation. Today, Clément and Antoine are the 5th generation of winegrowers.

A family know-how

Since the beginning of the last century, each generation has perpetuated the House's tradition by using only grapes from family vineyards. Today, the Pertois Lebrun House passionately produces champagnes called "Blanc de Blancs" (exclusively made from Chardonnay).

The philosophy of the House is based above all on respect for the plant and the soil, which is why it has chosen to practice sustainable viticulture. The family makes it a point of honor to produce only very high quality champagnes by limiting the use of chemicals as much as possible. The House's vines are ploughed, grassed and fertilized with organic fertilizers. .

By applying these methods, the Pertois Lebrun House voluntarily reduces the yields of the vine. All these precautions reflect on the quality of the grapes, which reveal an exceptional aromatic concentration, but also a diversity of parcels that has become rare in Champagne.

A terroir

The 9 hectares of Pertois Lebrun vines are spread over 5 large villages on the Côte des Blancs: Cramant, Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, Chouilly, Oiry and Oger. These villages are part of the 17 communes (out of a total of 320), enjoying the prestigious "Grand Cru" distinction.

The Côte des Blancs is the ideal land for the Chardonnay grape variety, offering the grapes the ideal conditions to reveal the finesse of their aromas. The predominance of chalk in the basements, the particularly mild climate and the hand of man, contribute to the development of Blanc de Blancs champagnes produced by this exceptional terroir. .
