Bonnaire Cramant 2012
Proper chalky nose with a hint of lemon and this very delicate plummy element. It glides down beautifully keeping central but with a real kick on the mid to late and this lovely delicate sweetness. Hints of toffee and stone fruit too.
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.
