Champagne Petit & Bajan

About Champagne Petit & Bajan

Champagne Petit et Bajan is a union of 2 families that have deep roots in Champagne. As the head winemaker at Perrier-Jouët, Richard Petit’s great-grandfather, Henri Lebrun, put his winemaking skills to good use as he produced his own wines from the 60 acres of vines in the village of Grauves that he inherited. Richard’s father and grandfather made similar endeavours, so it does not come as a surprise for Richard, the fourth generation of his family, to embark on his winemaking apprenticeship with his father in 1994 after completing his studies.

 

Véronique’s grandfather, Stanislas Bajan, of Polish origin, worked in Bouzy in 1935 as a cart driver for Champagne Lanson. He quickly rose through the ranks and got to work on Verzenay, a Grand Cru vineyard. Showing the same entrepreneurial flair as the Petits, Stanislas eventually purchased his own vines to produce his own label. Véronique’s father started working at Champagne Lanson at the age of 14 and acquired an estate with 70 acres of vines when he got married, 2 hectares of which went into producing Champagne Bajan-Comte with a modest 6,000 bottles annual production volume.
