We’re feeling a little bubbly this fine Wine Wednesday, how about you? Have an itch to just crack open a bottle of Champagne because it’s 11am and Wednesday and because why not? (Champagne is naturally appropriate at all hours of the day: brunch, lunch, dinner and everything in between! No judgements!) What we love about this particular Brut Premium Reserve from Charles Mignon is how unfussy, smile-inducing, fresh and smooth it is. It’s uncomplicated and ready to please. Just what we need right now! And how could you say no to a sub-$30 Champagne! It’s a bargain and one you certainly shouldn't pass up on.

The Charles Mignon House is a family affair with parents Bruno and Laurence at the helm and having roped in their now adult children, Manon and Guillaume, into the business. They operate with the vision that Champagne has the ability to turn a moment into an unforgettable experience (which is hard to argue with in general, hence the 11am on Wednesday indulgence). Their style is an effort in balancing vibrant minerality, fruit and freshness to produce a wine that is structured, finessed and pure. Having vineyards in the heart of the magical village of Chouilly helps too.

A blend of 55% Pinot Meunier, 25% Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Noir, the wine has a zesty appeal, showing notes of ripe, juicy, crunchy apples and pears with hints of apricots, blackberries, golden currants, toasty almonds and fleur-de-sel. Super fresh, a soft mousse and nicely textured. Easy drinking and easy to pop any day of the week! Yippee!

So stock up on this smile-inducing Champagne. We can all use a little positivity! Shipping included on orders of 4+ bottles ($116 a 4-pack). Cheers to Wednesday!

THE STORY TO KNOW

A line of winegrowers has preceded Bruno and Laurence Mignon, the creating couple of Champagne Charles Mignon. It is by transmission from mothers to daughters, from wives to husbands, from fathers to sons, that Champagne Charles Mignon today has the capacity to turn a moment into an unforgettable experience. With labour value as legacy, Laurence and Bruno united their fates, their taste for adventure and entrepreneurship. This is how Champagne Charles Mignon was born, in Epernay.

The Mignon family comes from a line of winegrowers native from Mesnil-le-Huttier, a little hamlet of Festigny, a village located a few kilometers away from Epernay, the capital city of champagne. The Vallée de la Marnes vineyard runs alongside Côte des Blancs, well-known for the quality of its Chardonnay. Champagne Charles Mignon has vines at the heart of the Great Growth village of Chouilly. Therefore all the quality and history of an old vineyard can be found in the House cuvees.

With the modernity of its stainless steel thermo-regulated, small capacity winery, the Charles Mignon House produces precise champagne wines. Enhancing their terroir and three grape varieties (Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier, Pinot Noir) through exceptional champagnes has earned them, since 2003, to be listed beside the greatest and most prestigious houses of champagne with UMC - the Union of Champagne Houses.

Bruno and Laurence have founded a Great House, but also a family with Manon and Guillame. As young children, they both played hide and seek in the cellars… Today, as grown-ups, they take part to the life of Champagne Charles Mignon. With Laurence, Manon is developing wine-tourism activities; with Bruno, Guillame can imagine the future cuvees of the brand. What unites the Mignon family above all is gastronomy: while in the kitchen, some saucepans are moved around and some smells are arising, a wine is chosen to sublimate the menu.

Supplies from the best growths in Champagne area and the precise vilification of the Charles Mignon House allow them to present cuvees combining minerality, fruity and freshness. Bruno and the oenologist of the house seek the perfect balance between the taste wealth of Pinot and the elegance of Chardonnay. No doubt you will be pleased to discover the Charles Mignon style: “Structure, finesse and purity.” A style acknowledged and rewarded by more than 150 awards!
