Today we’re talking about tasting and we could not miss this terrific Champagne, the Brut Nature by Christophe Mignon, currently one of my favorites, also for a high price quality ratio.
Obtained from Pinot Meunier in purity, this Brut Nature by Mignon is very interesting because it represents a rarity in the “landscape” of Champagne.
Pinot Meunier is a grape variety that generally gives softness and roundness to the Champagne and rarely we get interesting Champagnes from Pinot Meunier in purity: this grape is considered minor by purists of Champagne, because is often used to correct the imperfections of the vintage and it can not be compared to the two Champagne vine princes, the elegant and fine Chardonnay and the powerful and structured Pinot Noir.
The Brut Mignon has a creamy mousse and a really amazing sap. The effervescence is fine and not aggressive, the bubbles are fine, numerous and well defined.
At the nose, aromas of fresh, soft and fluffy fruits, yellow flowers, yeast, butter and brioche.
On the palate, a lovely and embracing sap, an excellent freshness and a balanced equilibrium in hardness.
Enchanting in pairing with seafood appetizers, fried and grilled shellfish, pasta with seafood based sauce and white meat (great with chicken!).
