Comment: some of the communes on the map are not part of the Champagne appellation and therefore don’t have any village profiles.
Pévy is located in the northwestern part of the Champagne region, a short distance northwest of Reims.
The Pévy commune covers 740 hectares and has 221 inhabitants (as of 2012).
The vineyards in Pévy are located around the village and are continuous with those in Prouilly. A large part of the vineyards consist of approximately south-facing slopes, from southwest to southeast. In similarity to its neighbour Prouilly, Pévy has a significant portion of vineyards in actual slopes that are close to south-facing, and therefore located on less flat ground than what is the case for many other vineyards in the Massif de Saint-Thierry and nearby areas of the Vesle et Ardre. Pinot Meunier is the most common grape variety in the commune.
The current vineyard surface in the Pévy commune is 92.4 hectares (228.3 acres). There are 53.4 ha Pinot Meunier (57.8%), 27.6 ha Pinot Noir (29.9%), and 11.4 ha Chardonnay (12.3%). Numbers from CIVC, as of 2013. In 1997, the vineyard surface was 80 ha. There are 33 vineyard owners (exploitants) in the commune.
Producer status is indicated where known: RM = récoltant-manipulant, or grower-producers. RC = récoltant-coopérateur, growers that are cooperative members but sell Champagnes under their own name.
