Extra Brut - Cuvée perpétuelle - Champagne Bonnet Ponson

Full bodied and aromatically intense, our signature cuvee draws its identity from the calcareous clay and sandy terroirs of the “petite montagne”.
On the nose, white fruits and citrus melt with candied notes, ripe Mirabelle and nutty aromas. Freshness in the attack, vinosity and structure for the mid-palate, tenderness on the ending.
