Christophe Mignon Coup de Foudre Case of 6 Bottles £191.70
This is the latest release from Christophe, made from equal parts of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier. After first fermentation it spends 9 months in new oak before bottling. It then sits on its lees for a further three years before disgorgement and the addition of 7gm/ltr of cane sugar.
The result is well balanced champagne with pleasant aromas of dried fruit and vanilla, which won a 'coup de couer' in the 2011 Gault et Millau Les Meilleurs Vins de France.

You may be interested to know that the Mignons also have accommodation to rent in the heart of the vineyard area. This is an extraordinary place in which to spend a few days. Within half an hour's drive of Epernay and the Cote de Blancs, or three quarters of an hour from the Montagne de Reims, where there is so much to see and do, and the warmth of the welcome from Christophe and his wife Laurence make this a must do for the avid champagne lover.
