What to expect


- Silky and elegant Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs

- High quality producer based in Avize

- Japanese cuisine would work perfectly. Sashimi, california rolls and fried spanner crab.

We were enamoured with this wine as it shows true purity and great terroir. Notes of tipsy cake on the nose with pineapple, lemon and ginger that lead on to fresh fig with some baked apple notes. The palate is juicy with a fleshy-chalky palate with a long length. Excellent.

Technical details

100% Avize Grand Cru fruit all from the 2012 harvest. Made entirely in stainless steel. Disgorged April 2018 with a dosage of 6.67 g/l.

About the house

About the house


Olivier Bonville is the Fourth generation of vine-growers and the third of Recoltant-Manipulant grower-producers to passionately tend his 6 hectares of Grand Cru Chardonnay in the Cotes-de-Blancs villages of Avize, Oger, and Mesnil-sur-Oger. His life-long association with these 77 distinct vineyard plots which comprise the family holdings and an obsessive approach to understanding their distinct characteristics, the soils in which they grow and the climatic forces that shape their seasonal potential has culminated in the Pur Terroir series of three limited edition Champagnes from the 2012 vintage. The distinct and wonderful terroir of three of the most renowned villages in Champagne are artfully expressed in these three wines, presented here together in this unique and limited edition wooden box. The Pur Terroir series offer immense drinking pleasure as well as a profound learning experience for those who love Champagne, adore Chardonnay, or take delight in unique vinous experiences.
