Decadent and classy. This is a Blanc de Noirs that seduces you, sip by sip, swirl after swirl and leaves a lasting impression.
This is named after Cyril Bonnet's Great, Great Grandfather Jules Bonnet who contributed to many years of winemaking and shaping the Bonnet-Ponson family style.
Deep gold in colour with notes of honeycomb, apricot and either orange rind or pink grapefruit. After a few moments in the glass, some pastry and toast start to develop.
With a large portion of the fruit being sourced from the mineral hilly Grand Cru of Verzenay, there is a pure mouthfeel, decadent, layered with plenty of mineral/chalk sensation. There is great length and persistence on the palate with vibrant and enticing acidity that guarantees the wines ageing potential. Whatever anyone tells you, don't be put of by the vintage, this is a knockout. Well-made and a smart wine. Needs food!
