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. This bold move paid off, as his son Franck Bonville founded the eponymous Champagne house in the early 1930s, which is still in the hands of his successors today. The Champagnes produced carry a history and are among the most qualitative of the Côte des blancs.

What is the history of Maison Franck Bonville?

In 1937, Alfred Bonville and his son Franck acquired a winegrower's house in the heart of Avize on Côte des blancs in order to make their own Champagne, but it wasn't until the aftermath of the Secsecond world war that Franck began to market the first cuvées under his own name and to expand the Domaine on the Avize terroir. In 1970, their son Gilles and his wife Ingrid joined the family business and modernized the technical tools with more appropriate technology. Their son Olivier, with a degree in oenology and extensive winemaking experience in Corsica and Germany, joined them in 1996, representing the fourth generation. It was also at this time that Gilles decided to manage the vineyard in a sustainable way.

Description Franck Bonville Brut Blanc de Blancs.

This Champagne Blanc de blancs is a blend of two years, made from the classified Grand Cru terroirs of Avize and Oger. Slow, complete fermentation in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats brings out the full aromatic potential of the grapes. The support of Réserve wines and extended aging on lees for 2/3 years reinforce the consistency of this blend. Finally, after disgorging and dosage at 8.3 g/L (for roundness), the bottles spend 9 Months on laths.

This Brut Grand Cru Blanc de blancs is without doubt the cuvée most representative of the House style, focused on minerality and lightness. Its color is pale golden yellow with straw yellow highlights. The nose opens with a delicate bouquet of white flowers, acacia and orange blossom, followed by subtle citrus notes of grapefruit and citron. This is followed by more rounded, gourmet notes of butter, brioche and even pear compote. The palate is immediately frank, fresh and energetic, with notes of orange and lychee, then very quickly creamy and unctuous, recapturing the buttery, brioche notes of the nose. The finish is light, accompanied by a few saline notes.

This tasty blend is above all a true Champagne aperitif, where gougères and savory canapés will be suitably enhanced, but it will also give volume and energy to beautiful scallops pan-fried with citrus fruits.
