A descendent of a long line of farmers, Christophe Mignon is a true conduit of the land and his unique approach to viticulture combines his own extension of biodynamics to include homeopathy, geobiology, and phytotherapy; all guided by the force of the moon in both the cellar and vineyard. His vines are spread among thirty parcels between the villages of Le Breuil and Festigny in the Vallée de la Marne. These terroirs are prime land for Pinot Meunier, which Mignon picks at optimum ripeness to allow for little, if any, dosage. This Millesime 2016 brilliantly showcases this underrated vintage. 

Intense notes of raspberries, rhubarb, rose petal and croissants evolve from the glass. A lively acid carries a creamy, opulent texture for the tight, compact bubbles to dance over. The mousse formed is elegant and starts the descent towards a long, chalky, bone dry finish with lasting notes of hibiscus and underripe strawberries. Truly a special wine proving once again that Mignon is a master of Pinot Meunier.
