This aptly-named “Cutie” was made with grapes from the 2017 vintage: 50% Chardonnay that was aged in oak barrels and 50% Pinot Noir aged in vats. With a combination of sustained effervescence and a steady stream of fine, intense bubbles, the La Mignonne is a refreshing everyday Champagne, perfect for brunch or a light meal.

Nose: Delicate and discreet, opening up to aromas of fruit and white blossoms.
Palate: Well-balanced with flavors of yellow stone fruits (plums, peaches); fresh, supple, and smooth.

In 1910, Louise Brison began cultivating a few acres of vines at a time when winemaking was not very lucrative. The estate is now managed by Louise Brison’s great-granddaughter, Delphine Brulez, who employs practices that enable natural biodiversity to flourish. The estate has operated in an organic manner since 2012 and has been certified organic since 2020.
