Christophe Mignon Cuvee Coup De Foudre Extra Brut
Not yet rated
100% Pinot Meunier, Dosage: 6g., 4 years aging, vinified in oak
Dosage: 6 g/l
Peter Liem: In 2003, he experimented with aging wine for an entire year in a new, 1,700-liter oak foudre, employing a blend of all three varieties in equal proportions. For the first release of this cuvée, called Coup de Foudre, he used a little reserve wine; the next edition, however, was pure 2006. He has since decided to make this entirely from a single vintage, although it isn't stated on the label, and it won't be made in every vintage. Although the oak is always new, it doesn't dominate the wine, and Mignon credits this to the depth and complexity attained through conscientious viticulture. "When you work well in the vines, you can do anything afterwards," he says.
Terroir: The vines are located in the municipalities of Festigny and Le Breuil.
Soil: A silty, clay limestone, characteristic of the Marne valley.
Vines: The ‘Les Varennes’ parcel of vines in Le Breuil which are 43 years old.
Our working methods are “alternative” but without any certification, we work in accordance with the lunar calendar (see our website for explanation).
Harvest: Manually harvested with careful monitoring and control of grape maturity. We use two pneumatic presses, 2000 and 4000 kgs capacity.
Wine Making: Each plot’s produce is stored separately in stainless steel or enamelled steel tanks. Bottled in 2014 with careful monitoring of the second fermentation. After an average “in bottle” ageing of 48 months each cuvée is disgorged on a favourable date chosen according to the lunar calendar. This date is indicated on the label.
Alcohol content: 12%
Net volume: 750 ml
Producer's Address: Champagne Christophe Mignon, La Boulonnerie, 51700 Festigny, France
