Champagne Petit Lebrun

Richard Petit

Created in 1964, the domaine works by using traditional champagne winemaking process. The maison Daniel Petit et Fils was founded in the early 1960s by Richard Petit’s grandparents, but the story begins one generation earlier. Richard’s great grandfather was the vineyard manager for Perrier Jouet, and lived in the elegant cellars in the center of Avize. He also owned a few hectares of grand cru vineyards of his own. When Perrier Jouet was sold to Mumm in 1959, he was able to purchase the home where he lived, which included the production room, storage, and over 3 km of caves below the house.
Today the domaine owns just over 4 hectares of grand cru chardonnay vines in Avize, Oiry, Chouilly, Oger, and Cramant. In the vineyard, they do not use herbicides, and all the treatments that they use on the field are products that are approved by Haute Valeur Environnementale, and all products that are used during vinification are approved by Agriculture Durable & Bio. The Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs is a blend of three consecutive vintages.. Richard and Veronique take a unique step to liberally use carbon dioxide just after picking and during the press to protect the juice from any oxidation which produces their typically fresh and pure house style.
