Its mellow gold hue is a sign of its ageing. Its mousse is delicate and its bubbles extremely fine. A rich, intense nose with a wide aromatic palette encompassing yellow fruit, pear and Mirabel plum, almond, hazelnut and white blossom, such as acacia, with a honeyed, toasted touch. The attack is forthright and elegant. It has a purity style that marries the structure and the texture of Pinot Noir with the balance and the freshness of Chardonnay. Perfect balance and immense length.

Critique Review

Blending fruit from grand cru vineyards in the Montagne de Reims and the Côte des Blancs, this is a richly textured wine. It has structure as well as minerality, ripe white and citrus fruits, and good potential. Drink from 2021.

Vineyard Info

The Mignon family comes from a line of wine-growers native from Mesnil-le-Huttier, a little hamlet of Festigny, a village located a few kilometres away from Epernay, the capital city of champagne. The Vallée de la Marne vineyard runs alongside Côte des Blancs, well-known for the quality of its Chardonnay. Champagne Charles Mignon has vines at the heart of the Great Growth village of Chouilly. Therefore all the quality and history of an old vineyard can be found in the House cuvees.

A line of wine-growers has preceded Bruno and Laurence Mignon, the creating couple of Champagne Charles Mignon. It is by transmission from mothers to daughters, from wives to husbands, from fathers to sons, that Champagne Charles Mignon today has the capacity to turn a moment into an unforgettable experience. With labour value as legacy, Laurence and Bruno united their fates, their taste for adventure and entrepreneurship. This is how Champagne Charles Mignon was born, in Epernay.
