Made by respected Epernay grower Charles Mignon, this is predominantly Pinot Noir grapes with smaller amounts of Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier. There are lovely fresh lemon and peach aromas from the Chardonnay, while the palate demonstrates the rich Pinot Noir flavours with notes of brioche and honey. This is characterful and refined with delicate bubbles. Enjoy as you would any Champagne, with laughter, with food or without...Exclusive to Rude Wines.

Tom Cannavan Reviews

Don't just take our word for it; here's what wine writer Tom Cannavan has to say:

"A keen price for a Champagne of this quality, made for Rude Wines by Charles Mignon. The majority of the blend is Pinot Noir, along with Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier, and has an inviting, generous bouquet, tiny bubbles streaming in the glass and plenty of zippy citrus and orchard fruits. In the mouth the mousse is lively and persistent, and there’s just a hint of the nutty and brioche character from the long ageing in bottle. It has an easy-drinking personality, with sweet and mouth-filling mid-palate fruit, and acidity that is balanced but not aggressive. This won’t disappoint, especially given it’s no more expensive than most supermarket own-label Champagnes"

The Region

Champagne is a wine region, not just a style of wine. It's about an hour's drive east of Paris, is France's most northerly wine region, and the combination of chalk soils, and an abundance of cool dark cellars to make and store Champagne make it the ideal place to make the world's most popular sparkling wines.

Yet 90% of grapes grown in Champagne come from almost 20,000 smallholders, owning a paltry 2ha on average. Selling their harvest to the big names or cooperatives is common, and a growing number now produce their own wines - like our Valendray Champagne.

Prawn Croquettes

A great snack or tapas dish, these prawn croquettes just need a drop of fresh, citrussy fizz to set them off perfectly - try Charles Valendray's Champagne, Prosecco or a still dry white such as Picpoul.

Lemon & Parsley Fishcakes

A great lunch or supper option served with green salad or chips, (depending on your attitude), especially with a glass of Charles Valendray Brut. These light fish cakes are crying out for a fresh, zingy white to pair up with the lemon and parsley notes in the dish.

Chicken Noodle Miso Soup

Comfort food at its best, a warming noodle soup pairs well with crisp, bone dry white wines such as white Bordeaux or Loire wines or try Champagne if you're feeling decadent.
