Charles Mignon, Cuvée Comte de Marne Brut Grand Cru Champagne
Origin: Epernay, Champagne, France
70 % Chardonnay, 30 % Pinot Noir from the first presses of the Grand Cru terroirs of the Montagne de Reims « Louvois » and the Côte des Blancs « Avize, Cramant, Chouilly ». A blend of one single year’s harvest.
Its mellow gold hue is a sign of its ageing. Its mousse is delicate and its bubbles extremely fine. A rich, intense nose with a wide aromatic palette encompassing yellow fruit, pear and Mirabel plum, almond, hazelnut and white blossom, such as acacia, with a honeyed, toasted touch. The attack is forthright and elegant. It has a purity style that marries the structure and the texture of Pinot Noir with the balance and the freshness of Chardonnay. Perfect balance and immense length.
