70% Chardonnay and 30% Pinot Noir. A selection of grand cru-rated Chardonnay fruit from Avize, Oger and Cramant and grand cru-rated Pinot Noir from Verzenay. Suave, supple, richly aromatic. ‘Ambrosie’ is the French word for ambrosia, the nectar of the gods.

Richard Petit’s family roots in Avize go back centuries, caring for Chardonnay on the chalky soils of the Côte de Blancs. Véronique Bajan’s clan hails from Pinot Noir terroir in Verzenay, grand cru land on the Montagne de Reims. Love, then marraige, came first in 1997; then in 1999, when Richard took over his family’s winery in Avize, the idea that they could create wine together blossomed. With Richard’s attention to detail in the fields and Véronique’s tasting prowess in the cellar, the small-batch, grand cru wines of Petit & Bajan are very much the voice of Champagne’s new generation. These are bold, vinous wines that set a higher bar for grand cru Champagne.
