Both Michel Ruelle and his wife Martine Pertois grew up with Champagne producing parents, so when they got married in the early 70’s there was only one clear thing to do. Now run by their son and daughter, Benoit and Virginie, Ruelle-Pertois remains a very small, humble and artisan winery. How they have somehow managed to remain humble and still somewhat unknown in modern day Champagne is nothing shy of miraculous. Located in Moussy, the literal crossroads of the Marne and the Cote des Blancs, and with every vine of the families Chardonnay located in Grand Cru villages, you’d have to bet against anyone like this still flying under the radar. Yet here they are, a lovely family operated gem, quietly making killer juice, keeping it real with only about 4000 cases TOTAL production each year.
