Champange Franck Bonville, Blanc de Blancs, Grand Cru Brut NV
"A benchmark all-Chardonnay Champagne at a remarkably good price. Bonville is in the grand Cru village of Avize." The Wine Gang
|Grape Blend||Chardonnay 100%|
Champagne Franck Bonville's Blanc de Blancs NV is dry, smooth and creamy with a nice steely backbone, possessing exquisite structure, weight and balance – the hallmarks of the best vineyard sites of Avize in the prestigious Blanc de Blancs district – the region's quality heartland.
The NV possesses the class of more famous Champagne labels, without the hefty price-tag.
Bonville's Champagnes are incredibly popular with the French public – who would rather go for quality than a label alone. In fact, as testament to the estate's quality, Bonville used to supply grapes to Bollinger no less, before switching to focus on their own fine wine production.
Good aromatic definition with notes of apple, citrus and hawthorn, lovely mineral purity and depth. Well balanced and focused, intense on the front, mineral centre, finishes long and elegant.
"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
