A FAMILY ADVENTURE
Bruno and Laurence have founded a Great House, but also a family with Manon and Guillaume. 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, Guillaume 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.
