Christophe Mignon Rose ADN de Meunier Brut MV

Christophe Mignon Rose ADN de Meunier Brut MV

100% Pinot Meunier. Meunier specialist Christophe Mignon comes from a long line of farmers in the hamlet of Le-Mesnil-le-Huttier. His 6.3 hectares of vines were planted by his great-grandparents and are spread among thirty parcels between the villages of Le Breuil and Festigny in the Vallée de la Marne. This area south of the Marne River and along the Flagot tributary is known for its high percentage of Pinot Meunier, which is particularly well suited to the deep clay and chalky Tuffeaux soils that dominate the terrain. Mignon’s unique approach to viticulture combines natural practices including biodynamics, phytotherapy, homeopathy, and geobiology. He likens nature to a Rubik's cube, always changing and offering up new challenges. Mignon has followed the lunar calendar for 20 years, allowing the moon’s cycles to dictate his work in the vineyards and in the cellar. He strives to follow the rhythm of nature and explains, “the moon for a vigneron is like a metronome for a musician.” In seeking harmony between the root system and everything that happens above ground, Mignon employs one person per hectare in his vineyards. This ambitious and costly ratio helps to obtain very low yields and directly contributes to the high quality of mature fruit at harvest. In the cellar, each of Mignon’s 30 terroirs is vinified and conserved separately. In addition, Christophe prefers his wines on the drier side, and picking at optimum ripeness allows for little to no dosage and with very minimal amounts of sulfur in the bottle. The Rose ADN de Meunier is from parcels planted in 1976 and comes from the 2016 & 2015 vintage. The production is limited to less than 500 bottles total(!) and is fresh, lively with a palate that is layered and extremely elegant. Do not miss the chance to try a bottle of champagne from the Pinot Meunier (the underdog of Champagne) master.

Tasting Notes
"The NV Brut Rosé ADN de Meunier is a blend of equal parts 2016 and 2015, done in an assemblage style, which means a touch Meunier vinified as still red wine is added to a core of Meunier vinified off the skins. Mignon's Rosé is bright and beautifully lifted, with lovely aromatic presence and impeccable balance. Deceptive in its mid-weight structure, the Rosé has plenty of depth as well as structure. More importantly, it is flat out delicious. Give the Rosé a good bit of air, as it really only blossoms with quite a bit of aeration. The current release is a blend of equal parts 2016 and 2015. Dosage is 6 grams per liter." - Antonio Galloni
