Christophe Mignon Coup de Foudre Chardonnay Extra Brut
Christophe’s prestige cuvee, the Coup de Foudre, has always been a blend of all three champagne grape varieties in equal quantities, but the current offering, from the 2013 harvest is 100% Chardonnay.
Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier versions will also be available shortly.
This was bottled in 2015, after ageing for a year in oak tuns. It then spent 5 years on the lees before being disgorged on a day dictated by the Lunar Calendar.
A very clean and delicate nose with subtle notes of wood leads to a smooth, fresh and highly precise palate with toasted almond flavours.
Composition: 100% Chardonnay
Added sugar: Between 2 and 5g/l
Grapes harvested: 2013
Date of disgorgement: See back of the label
