Since Grégoire Bonnet in 1862, six generations of the family have built the house of Champagne Bonnet-Ponson. Thierry Bonnet and his son, Cyril, are now the guardians of tradition and maintain the original style of winemaking by sourcing fruit from only their family-held vineyards. The legacy is spread over 26 acres and five Premier Cru and Grand Cru villages: Chamery, Vrigny, Coulommes la Montagne, Verzenay and Verzy. With a desire to preserve the terroir and the continuing search to improve their wines, Bonnet-Ponson now manages their vineyards using organic practices.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Generosity and roundness characterize the 2011 vintage: This wine is a vibrant experience, with elegant aromas of minerals and lavender along with subtle notes of fresh cherries. The beautiful balance between black raspberry and chalk is a powerful impression on the palate and ends with earthy cellar notes. There is a complementary component from barrel aging. The bubbles are ultra-thin and the refreshing finish shows salty and saline nuances.
