Petit Meslier is a rare white wine grape that is a minor component of some Champagne blends. It is valued for its ability to retain acidity even in hot vintages. In the very rare cases where it is not blended, it makes crisp wines tasting of apples.

Petit Meslier plantings in France are now down to just a couple of acres, most of which is in the Marne Valley just west of Epernay.
