Bonnaire Love Story 2012
Cramant/Bouzy, stunning nose. Hints of toffee and honey. Initially pinot heavy it turns to oodles of exotic fruit. The palate is pin point perfect. Crisp chalky Chardonnay alongside, generous, juicy Pinot Noir. Gorgeous wine. And this will age beautifully.
The house was founded in 1932 and is now run by the fourth generation, Jean-Etienne and Jean-Emmanuel, who work with a large chunk of vineyards mainly in the brilliant village of Cramant. They also have vines in Chouilly, Oiry, Bergeres les Vertus and Cuis. They are HVE certified and use malolactic throughout their wines and some oak in Cuvée Variance. Their wines show a wonderful creamy side to the village; round, opulent and moreish with a nicely poised zesty edge.
