Champagne Charles Mignon Premium Reserve Brut NV

Champagne, FranceChampagne Charles Mignon is a 6th generation grower based in Epernay, and have been working towards organic certification these past years. The family became a NM (negoce) in the 1990s as they had to begin purchasing fruit to maintain and grow the business. This cuvée blends 20% Pinot Noir, 25% Chardonnay, 55% Meunier from across the Marne Valley (Chavot, Monthelon, Moussy, Epernay, Fleury la Rivière, Venteuil, Port à Binson, Jonquery, Barbonne, Bergère les Vertus, Leuvrigny), as well as from the Sézannais and Vitry. This was fermented in stainless, and with 20-40% reserve wines. After 18-24 months on lees, this was dosed with 9 g/L reserve wines. Old school stylings, with white florals, red apple, flashes of lemon and ample patisserie dough on a creamy, cushy palate, tightened with a chalky dusting that runs through the finish.Tasted: 07 July 2021Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 70.00 private wine stores Producer: Champagne Charles MignonDistributors: Sur Lie
