Marquage Champagne Jules Bonnet, Champagne BP
BLANC DE NOIRS

2011

Elaborated on the best vintages, this wine is a tribute to our elder Jules Bonnet, and his work as a winemaker.

Our best Pinots Noirs are selected for a vinification in small oak casks, under the action of the natural yeast of the terroir. After the fermentation, the wine is grown 9 months in the barrels with few stirring of the lees. Bottled without filtration, the wine is aged for a minimum of 6 years.

Generosity and roundness characterize the 2011 vintage: little berries, apple tart, plum and dried fruit notes melt to form a complex and engaging nose. Straight without being too sharp, the attack leads to a rich and vinous mid-palate: freshness and vinosity balance harmoniously along with the creaminess of the bubbles. The ending extends on a delicate mineral sensation, a signature of the chalky terroir.

A champagne for connoisseur, with a vibrant and strong personality. Its structure and aromatic complexity call for refined cuisine.
