Pierre Mignon, Champagne, Grande Reserve, Premier Cru, France
The Mignon Champagne house has been in the family for 5 generations and now Pierre and Yveline Mignon have perfected their products with the help of their children Celine and Jean- Charles. Jean-Charles is the tour de force behind the modernisation and standards of excellence, he wields his magic both in the vineyards and the winery. The winery is set in Le Breuil in the Marne Valley, however they have sights across Marne valley, Epernay and Cotes des Blancs, this allows them to hand pick their own grapes and control the finished wines.
Meticulous grape selection, refined settling techniques and rigorous fermentation controls allows them to filtrate less which means we are left with nothing but preserved aromas. Crisp, clean and vibrant notes as well as the brioche, yeasty and creamy finishes we expect from fine Champagnes, this does not disappoint.
Pierre Mignon has a level 3 HVE (Haute Valeur Environmentale) and they are aiming for 100% sustainability.
