From vine to wine
Perched on the foothills of the Marne Valley, Venteuil is part of a long line of wine-producing villages along the river. It is renowned for the quality of its Meunier and its great aromatic expressiveness. Cyril could not have chosen a better place to be a winemaker!

The Mignon family is not afraid to use big words. From father to son, they have always defended a sustainable viticultural philosophy, filled with good farmer’s common sense:
  • Tillage: plowing and inter-vine hoes
  • Regular mowing to avoid weed-killers
  • Insecticides banned, use of sexual confusion racks
  • Organic amendments in the fall, no fertilizer
  • Natural treatments based on algae to energize the plant at flowering time

The essence of the house

The wines list

The importance of subsoils and basements

The plural form is important here. Because if the clay-limestone soil dominates, its profile varies a lot from one plot to another according to the relief, inclination, and exposure….It sometimes varies within the same plot of a few ares! The infinity of typicities that it contains offers as many possibilities in the cellars. In plural as well, because at Mignon-Boulard, do not expect a single large longitudinal cellar; the basements are full of corridors and nooks and crannies!
