Tasting Notes

Out of a production of only 2,500 bottles, only 10 cases of this Extra Brut were allocated to the U.S. This wine developed out of dosage trials that Olivier Bonville performed while finding the right amount of sugar to add to the vintage. In fact, this wine, which does not have a vintage on it, is the same base as his 2009 vintage--but only has 2.5 grams per liter of dosage instead of the 7 grams that he decided on for the regular vintage release. This is the third time the Bonvilles have made an Extra Brut, and it is one of the best I have ever had in the style. The fruit is sourced exclusively from estate vines in the Grand Cru of Avize, and the wine goes through complete malolactic fermentation. While many Extra Bruts, especially Blanc de Blancs Extra Bruts, are edgy, severe wines that must be paired with rich shellfish in order to be palatable, the roundness of the vintage Champagne underneath and the four years of aging on the lees this wine received have made this all-too-easy to drink. This wine is precise and dry, full of the white flowers and brioche that make Avize a famous terroir. Grab some while you can! (Gary Westby, K&L Champagne Buyer)
