Producer

The estate of Pierre Mignon sits in the heart of the Champagne region and the Mignon family have been making Champagne for several generations. The wines are made in their own cellars using traditional methods; delicate pressing, slow fermentation and aging in the cellar, and this alongside their many years of experience means they produce exceptional Champagnes with a fresh, vibrant character balanced with a soft and creamy mousse.

Region

The Champagne region is one of the country’s most important wine regions and has been producing champagne for over 1000 years. South of Reims, Épernay is the capital and main trading ground for the area. French wine laws state that only sparkling wines from this region can be labelled as Champagne and they must adhere to strict appellation standards. 

The chalky soil (good for both water retention and also drainage) is perfect for the grapes needed for Champagne; Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier, and Chardonnay. Unlike the southern regions of France, Champagne has a mild, steady climate with low levels of sunshine with the ideal amount of rain. Wines from this region command high prices, often considerably more than other sparkling wines. We recommend Billecart Salmon Cuvee Brut Sous Bois or Egly Ouriet Blanc de Noirs Grand Cru.
