History and Terroir

Six-generation Pierre Péters is one of the finest domaines in the grand cru village of Le Mesnil-sur-Oger. Rodolphe Péters took over from his father in 2008, and has since helped shape the estate’s name around the globe.

Farming and Winemaking

The leading grower Champagne producer, known for precise and tightly mineral chardonnay, picks grapes from 20 hectares of beautiful vines growing in stark-white chalk, ferments in stainless steel tanks, so these champagnes reflect the specificity of Le Mesnil’s calcareous terroir. Instead of using clones, they replant vines using a massal selection method, ensuring the newest plants are off-shoots taken from cuttings of the estate’s best selected vine-plants from two historic parcels. As a result, this contributes to maintaining a consistent genetic identity and offers a reflection of terroir in the wine. “We don’t impose our style on the wines through winemaking; instead, we allow our champagnes to express their own natural qualities. Le Mesnil gives our wine a strong touch of salinity,” says Péters.

“In the long run, the greatest terroirs are stronger than the best winemakers.”
