This notable domaine in the Vallée de la Marne is today worked by the fifth generation of the Mignon family.
Pinot Meunier is the main focus, as it is particularly well suited to the deep clay and chalky tuffeau soils that dominate the terrain. The Mignon family have 6.5 hectares across 30 parcels, planted to 90% Pinot Meunier, 5% Pinot Noir, and 5% Chardonnay. They practice biodynamic viticulture, and Mignon employs one person per hectare in their vineyards. This ambitious and costly ratio helps to obtain very low yields and directly contributes to the high quality of mature fruit at harvest.
In December 2017, Galloni noted that Mignon’s is “one of the most distinctive wines being made in Champagne today. Don’t miss it.”
