"This is one of the best Champagnes we carry regardless of price. Made from the one and three quarters acre Belles Voyes vineyard in Oger, this is Bonville's top of the line Champagne. The vines were planted in 1938 and the vineyard is ideally located in the mid slope of this Grand Cru village. The wine is made entirely from the 1997 harvest and is all Chardonnay. Olivier Bonville ferments and ages the juice in old oak casks before bottling. The only wine I can compare it to is the Clos de Mesnil from Krug. It is the perfect Blanc de Blanc, rich and taught at once and any words that I use to describe it will not do it proper justice. (Gary Westby, Champagne Buyer) "
