The Vallée de la Marne is the subregion within Champagne where pinot meunier dominates. Christophe Mignon’s family vineyards in Le-Mesnil-le-Huttier lie right in the meunier heartland, and Christophe himself is dedicated to growing that particular grape variety.

Growing biodynamically for two decades now, he has attuned not only his farming practices but also the processes in the cellar to the rhythm of the moon cycle. He harvests his grapes at optimal ripeness and uses minimal sulfur. This brut nature combines equal parts of two recent vintages. It ages in the bottle for two years and receives no final dosage. Apricot and spice, with a touch of richness, lead to a bright, mineral palate and a long, dry finish. Biodynamically grown, low-intervention/natural wine, vegan.
