Estate Notes

Olivier (grandson of Franck) Bonville’s NV Champagne shows all the pedigree and class of many more famous champagne labels, without the hefty price-tag. It is incredibly popular with the French public – who would rather go for quality than a label alone.

Bonville’s Champagne is a superb food wine. Smooth and creamy with a nice steely backbone, it possesses exquisite structure, weight and balance that are the hallmarks of some of the best vineyard sites of the Blanc de Blancs district – the region’s quality heartland. In fact, as testament to the estate’s quality, Bonville also used to supply grapes to Bollinger no less.

Reviews

"Fine bubbles, intense yet elegant candied-citrus, apple and peach fruit with lovely supple texture and biscuity, creamy notes. A benchmark all-Chardonnay Champagne at a remarkably good price. Bonville is in the grand Cru village of Avize." The Wine Gang

"Lightly creamy, with pretty violet and smoke notes winding through the biscuit and lemon meringue flavors. This is subtle, featuring well-integrated acidity and a supple structure overall. Easy to like." Wine Spectator

"Pale gold. Bright citrus and green apple aromas, with deeper nuances of honey and sweet butter in the background. Pliant and gently toasty, with juicy orchard fruit and floral flavors lifted by smooth mineral and spice qualities. Taut and nervy on the finish, which repeats the mineral note." Stephen Tanzer, International Wine Cellar

"...this Champagne is a bit of a find...as refined and racy as it is delicious. Small, pin-prick bubbles precede a nose that has white flower nuances to racy citrus and crisp apple fruit, with just a hint of something hazelnutty in the background. The wine races across the tongue, with a firm, tingling mousse, and stays very fresh whilst flavours of ripe orchard fruits, nuts and a little fig and honey develop." Tom Cannavan’s wine-pages.com

"Bonville Champagnes are the epitome of blanc de blancs, showing much more complexity than the mono-terroir wines of smaller growers. A great discovery." Decanter magazine
