Christophe Mignon Champagne Elevates Meunier To Its Finest

While Meunier previously had the enduring reputation of being inferior in quality to Chardonnay and Pinot Noir and was believed to be unsuitable for long-term aging, this misconception is now gone due to the dedication of a few winemakers.
About one-third of the vineyards in Champagne are allocated to Meunier with a predominance in Vallée de la Marne.
This is where the Mignon family farms a little more than six hectares of vines planted by his great-grandparents.
Mignon’s unique approach to viticulture, or what many call the Mignon Method, combines natural practices including biodynamics, phytotherapy, homeopathy and geobiology.
All his plots are manually harvested with careful monitoring to control the grape maturity and each step in the vineyard follows the lunar calendar.

''As an artisan winemaker, I do not just copy a ready-made recipe. I create as I move on, adjusting and daily exchanging with the soil, the plant and the cycle of seasons. I observe, I am present, I am patient. A keen eye, a practiced hand and a sensible mind, such are my tools. My moves are deliberate, attentive and respectful.''
