Their fresh and vibrant character is balanced with a soft and creamy mousse to produce Champagne that is perfect for any occasion.
The typicality and diversity of the terroirs make it possible to prepare high quality champagnes of character. The vineyard of 14 hectares is spread over the whole of Champagne area - Marne Valley, Côtes des Blancs and Épernay region, planting Pinot Meunier (60%), Pinot Noir (10%),and Chardonnay (30%). All of the picking is done by hand.
In order to continually improve quality, Pierre Mignon has set up a very strict selection process for the grapes and pressed juices, with a meticulous settling stage and rigorous control of the fermentations. The extreme care taken over the production of the wines reduces the need for filtration, thereby preserving all of the flavour for the subsequent blends. Devoted to the land and passionate about wine, Jean-Charles Mignon creates the Maison’s Champagnes and regularly produces characterful new Cuvées.
No oak ageing
This prestige Champagne is a beautiful straw yellow colour with a very fine mousse and has a pleasing nose of white fruit, peach and yellow plum fruit, toasted notes, dried fruit and almonds. The palate is rich and complex with notes of honey and mirabelle plums that agree with the nose. Very much a gastronomic Champagne.
Superb as an aperitif or served with dishes such as roasted fillet of St-Pierre, lobster or poached turbot with Nantais butter/ foie gras with figs.
Pinot Meunier 55%
Pinot Noir 35%
