Champagne PANNIER was founded by Louis Eugene Pannier in 1899, in Dizy, next to Epernay. In 1937, his son purchased medieval cellars in Château-Thierry, in the Marne Valley and starts trading . A group of wine growers purchased the champagne house and the cellars in 1974.During an archaeological study in 1999, a XIV century rock carving of an archer was found in the cellars. This carving became the new logo for Champagne PANNIER with the motto of "Ad perfectionem intendere" – we aim for perfection. This emblem represents PANNIER's values and wines: elegance, uprightness and balance.
