In the "capital of Champagne", Épernay, lies the Champagne Charles Mignon. The family business has been producing the coveted French sparkling wine for over 100 years.
Champagne Charles Mignon - straight from the heart of the region
The Mignon family originally comes from the village of Mesnil-le-Huttier, just a few kilometres from Épernay. Already there, the family had dedicated itself to the winemaking craft. Today, Bruno and Laurence Mignon are at the helm, their children Manon and Guillaume are already actively supporting them. While the ladies of the house are taking care of new ideas for wine tourism in the house, Bruno and his son are collecting ideas for the next cuvees in the portfolio.
The white slopes of the Champagne
The vineyards of Champagne Charles Mignon are located in Chouilly. Around the village there are Grand Cru sites from which the Mignons obtain their grapes. The village is not far from the river Marne, in the wine-growing region Côte des Blancs, which is famous for its Chardonnay.
The Côte des Blancs got its name from the strongly chalky soils, which shine white. This gives the Chardonnay its finesse and freshness, which make it so unique and qualify it as a candidate for the greatest cuvées in Champagne.
The sparkling wines of the house
Three grape varieties are used by Champagne Charles Mignon in their cuvées:
- Pinot Meunier
- Pinot Noir
The family business has a small winery that produces so little that a certain exclusivity surrounds the Mignon champagnes.
The Mignons are dedicated to bringing the minerality and freshness of their grapes to the bottle unaltered. "Structure. Finesse and purity" are the guiding criteria of Champagne Charles Mignon. Today, in addition to Champagne Brut and 1er Cru, they also offer rosé sparkling wines or Blanc de Blancs.
