Franck Bonville

In the early 1900s, Alfred Bonville took the ambitious gamble of buying plots of vines at a time when the Phylloxera crisis had raged just a few years earlier.

Description Franck Bonville Pur Avize 2016.

A Blanc de blancs from parcels of vines on the Avize terroir only.

Assemblage of 3 parcels from the heart of the Avizois terroir that encircle the village. The very fine bubbles hint at the energy of this Champagne. 

The grape variety used is exclusively Chardonnay, giving this Champagne a very flowery side of acacia flowers, wild strawberries and white-fleshed fruit blossoms. The finish is slightly mango.

Champagne any time of day with smoked fish canapés or even grilled fish à la plancha flavored with Espelette pepper.
