Founded in 1946, Champagne Jean Pernet is a small, family-owned winery with 17 hectares of vineyards in Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, Vertus, Chouilly, Épernay, Chavot, and Leuvrigny. They produce approximately 10,000 cases per year, and the vineyards are sustainably farmed and hand picked. Fourth generation, Marie-Agathe Pernet, has joined her father, Cristophe and, together, the two are crafting wines of great finesse, warmth, length, and balance. And those who are attracted to family-made mineral-driven styles of Grand Cru Le Mesnil Sur Oger Champagnes will find a lot to love in the Champagnes of Pernet.
The Prestige is 100% Grand Cru Chardonnay grown on limestone soils from Le Mesnil sur Oger, Oger and Chouilly. Aged 6 months on the fine lees before bottling, 30-36 months in bottle after the secondary fermentation and 3-6 months in bottle after disgorgement before release.
