Bonnaire Le Bateau 2016
Aged on cork and steel vinified, Le Bateau has a beautifully toffeed nose with plenty of sprites lemon zest and chalk. A perfectly placed palate, everything is exactly where it needs to be. Brought brilliantly and tensely to a finish with this bright and energetic finish. This is a lovely wine that deserves to be aged.
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.
