Champagne Vignon Père et Fils is a family estate led by Stéphane Vignon, located in the Grand Cru village of Verzenay in the Montagne de Reims in Champagne, where the family has been growing grapes for generations. Stéphane is passionate about the vineyards, farming the family's 55 different plots spread out over 7 acres as naturally as possible without the use of toxic products. Vignon is the King of Pinot Noir, as the family works mostly with this noble grape, however they do farm smaller amounts of Chardonnay. The wines are rarely fined, bottled with low dosage and are not filtered or chaptalized (nature permitting). The results are pure, terroir driven Champagnes that reflect the identity of the land and the Vignon family. 

The Champagne Brut Grand Cru Les Marquises is a blend of 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay from over 35-year old vines in the Grand Cru villages of Verzenay (90%) and Verzy (10%). The wine is fermented with native yeasts, with 70% in steel and 30% in oak barrels. In the glass the wine has a fine bead of persistent mousse and a light gold color with copper highlights strewn throughout. On the nose, Les Marquises displays gorgeous aromas of golden delicious apple, almonds, fresh raspberry, chamomile and white flowers. On the palate, the Champagne is energized and vibrant with small, soft and luxurious bubbles that lend the wine an elegant mouthfeel: light and airy like drinking a cloud. The flavors glide effortlessly across the palate, floating away into a refined and polished finish.
