A beautiful introduction from the first pastry scents that come around a controlled gluttony. Evolution notes are here, butter aromas take over, wide and generous. The volume of wine, rich and fat, comes to surround fresher notes, minty and iodized. The frame of 2013 is recognizable, marked by the Bonville style and the Belles Voyes style with its light and aerial oxygenation. Real wine of gastronomy, we enjoy tasting it the easiest way too: sharing it between friends, sitting on the low wall of the eponymous plot on Oger’s heights.

 

As demand for the greatest Côtes des Blancs grand crus continues to spiral, the privilege of substantial, well-placed holdings cannot be overstated. Gilles and Ingrid Bonville and their son Olivier are in command of 20 glorious hectares of prime grand cru turf, largely in Avize, with old vines on the slope of Oger and a little in Le Mesnil-sur-Oger and Cramant. Tended and vinified with precision, their polished blanc de blancs contrast the tension and brilliance of Avize with the generosity and exoticism of Oger. Olivier Bonville is the Fourth generation of vine-growers. Tyson Stelzer.
