Château Mignan wine producer

Château Mignan
Not actually a castle, but a long-established family winery currently run by Christian Mignard, his wife Carole and their three children in the little village of Siran, between La Livinière and Pépieux in France’s Languedoc.
 
Siran lies in the AOC Minervois-La Livinière, and so do just over half of the family’s 12 ha of vineyards, with the remaining 5 ha just outside in AOC Minervois.  All are on the sought-after “high terrace” of Minervois, which skirts the southern foot of the Montagne Noir range.
 
Most of the vineyards are planted with black grapes: Syrah, old-vine Grenache and ancient, century-old Carignan.  These produce one AOC Minervois red, Cuvée Pech-Quisou, and two Minervois-La Livinières: Les Trois Clochers and the old-vine flagship, L’Oeil du Temps.
 
They also produce a white Minervois, from a traditional local blend of Grenache Blanc, Roussanne, Marsanne and Rolle (Vermentino).  All their wines have been certified organic since the 2012 vintage.
