Bernard Pertois Champagne

Champagne Bernard Pertois stands on the corner of rue Charpentier Laurain in the Grand Cru village of Le Mesnil sur Oger. Le Mesnil sur Oger sits in the heart of the Côte des Blancs region, an area and terroir renowned for its Chardonnay grapes.


The Pertois family have been growing grapes for more than 10 generations and started producing their own Champagne in 1910. They have 15 hectares of vines of which 7 are Grand Cru Chardonnay. The only grape used for their Grand Cru Champagne production is Chardonnay with the balance being sold on to other producers including some of the big names in Reims.

Patrice Pertois, the current custodian, produces 35-38,000 bottles per year assisted by his wife and son, a graduate of the Lycee Viticole in Avize. Patrice is proud of the fact that one of his plots is adjacent to Krug’s famous Clos du Mesnil. He describes what has become an annual tradition in that every year a Krug representative comes around and makes him a very generous offer for his land, his vines and his grapes and every year the offer is turned down.

Bernard Pertois’ Champagnes are fantastic examples of grower Champagne at its best. Produced by the family themselves from a single Grand Cru vineyard, they represent the best of what the Chardonnay grape combined with the local terroir can produce.

Brut Tradition Grand Cru
Bernard Pertois’ Brut Tradition Gran Cru is a Chardonnay Blanc de Blancs Champagne produced solely from their family’s Grand Cru vineyard in the village of Mesnil sur Oger.  This Champagne offers everything that one would expect from an excellent Blanc de Blancs Champagne – light, fresh and subtle combined with a real depth and length of flavour.

Cuvée de Réserve Grand Cru
A Chardonnay Blanc de Blancs Champagne from one of the most famous Champagne villages in the region.  Light and flowery, well balanced with a beautiful aroma as well being silky smooth. This is a personal favourite and a genuine Champagne for all occasions.  This Champagne is an outstanding example of Blancs de Blancs Champagne from the Côte des Blancs at its best.

Cuvée de Prestige Grand Cru
Bernard Pertois’ Réserve Grand Cru is a fantastic vintage Blanc de Blancs Chardonnay Champagne. This Champagne is a real joy to drink. Patrice Pertois (the current custodian) has taken the smoothness, balance and freshness of the Cuvée de Reserve and taken it to another level, adding greater depth and length to the finish.
