"The Bonville family were grape growers in the Côte de Blancs until after World War II, when they began making Champagne themselves from the fruit grown in the Grand Cru villages of Avize and Oger. The domaine, a true family enterprise, is now in the third generation. It is run by Olivier Bonville, who grew up in the business working side-by-side with his parents, Ingrid and Gilles. Today the estate covers 20 hectares (45 acres) in the Grand Cru villages of Cramant, Avize and Oger. These exclusive Grand Cru vineyards guarantee the highest quality fruit. The vines are cultivated with respect for the environment and the vinification is done with the greatest possible care, with long aging before bottling. We have been importing Champagne Franck Bonville directly for many years now and have thus earned an allocation of this small-production cuvée to share with you. The current batch is a blend of the fantastic 2002, 2000 & 1998 vintages, all sourced from old, mid-slope vines in the Grand Cru villages of Oger and Cramant. The vine age averages over 50, with no vines under 40 years in the blend. This is stunningly rich Blanc de Blancs, with lots of rich fresh cream, yet it still has the minerality and zing that one would expect from an all-Chardonnay Champagne."
