The Mignon family comes from a long line of wine growers native to Mesnil-le-Huttier, a little hamlet of Festigny, a village located a few kilometres away from Epernay, the capital city of champagne. The Vallée de la Marne vineyard runs alongside Côte des Blancs, well-known for the quality of its Chardonnay. Charles Mignon has vines at the heart of the great growth village of Chouilly. Therefore all the quality and history of an old vineyard can be found in the house cuvees.
Bruno and Laurence founded Charles Mignon and now run it with family members Manon and Guillaume. As young children, they both played hide and seek in the cellars. Today, as grown-ups, they take part to the life of Champagne Charles Mignon. With Laurence, Manon is developing wine-tourism activities while with Bruno, Guillaume creates future cuvees of the brand. What unites the Mignon family above all is food and wine matching.
With the modern stainless steel thermos regulators, small capacity wineries like the Charles Mignon House can produces precise, world aclaimed champagne. Enhancing their terroirs and three grape-varieties (Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier, Pinot Noir) through exceptional champagnes has earned them, since 2003, to be listed beside the greatest and most prestigious houses of champagne with UMC – the Union of Champagne Houses.
Supplies from the best growths in Champagne area and the precise vinification of the Charles Mignon House allow them to present cuvees combining minerality, fruit and freshness. Bruno, the oenologist of the house, seeks the perfect balance between the taste of Pinot and the elegance of Chardonnay.
