Although not by rule, Bonville’s vintage bottling nearly always comes from choice holdings in the esteemed grand cru of Avize. Their goal here, whether in a chiseled and lean vintage or a lavishly rich vintage, is to express the particularity—the individuality—of Chardonnay as voiced by the distinctive grand cru terroirs of the Blanc des Blancs. This release was disgorged after six and a half years on the lees with a dosage of 6.7 grams per liter, and it offers a profile of rich yet corseted fruit framed by a deep, nearly savory sense of minerality that is very Avize.
