Wine Comments
This Brut Champagne is 100% Pinot Meunier. Elegant and refined it will show slight spicy notes on the palate as well as pear and dried fruit notes. Magnificent on its own, this Champagne can also accompany shellfish and fish dishes.


The Domaine
Christophe Mignon comes from a long line of farmers in the hamlet of Le-Mesnil-le-Huttier, 13 miles west of Epernay.  His 6.3 hectares of vines were planted by his great-grandparents and are spread among thirty parcels. This area south of the Marne River is known for its high percentage of Pinot Meunier grapes, which is particularly well suited to the deep clay and chalky soils dominating the terrain.
Mignon’s unique approach to viticulture combines natural practices including biodynamics, phytotherapy, homeopathy and geobiology. He likens nature to a rubik’s cube, always changing and offering up new challenges. Christophe has the mind of an engineer and the heart and soul of a fifth generation farmer.
Christophe and his wife Laurence have followed the lunar calendar for 20 years, allowing the moon’s cycles to dictate their work in the vineyards and in the cellar. They strives to follow the rhythm of nature and explains, “the moon for a vigneron is like a metronome for a musician.”  In seeking harmony between the root system and everything that happens above ground, Mignon employs one person per hectare in his vineyards. This ambitious and costly ratio helps to obtain very low yields and directly contributes to the high quality of mature fruit at harvest.
Mignon prefers his wines on the drier side and picking at optimum ripeness allows for little to no dosage (added sugar). Additionally, very minimal amounts of sulfur are used.
