rational image
Rational producers demonstrate that they use the least amount of intervention in the vineyard and winery to make the best possible wine.
At Champagne Pierre Mignon a policy of minimum intervention is practiced in the vineyards. The rows are grassed over to protect the soil and plant sexual confusion treatments reduce the need for chemical treatments to be used. The winery has recently invested in new stainless steel tanks with positive charged walls which allow for them to be cleaned much more energy efficiently.
