Bonnaire Tradition L'Esprit du Temps
Bonnaire Tradition is a fruity blend of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Meunier from the 2017/2016 vintages. Chalky, round, fruity with a surprising crisp, dry finish. This balanced, complex blend of three grape varieties showcases the best grapes of featured years and is perfect for special occasions or casual tastings.
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.
50% Chardonnay, 30% Pinot Noir, 20% Meunier
