    These three single-village champagnes from Franck Bonville are such fabulous examples of how expressive terroir can be. The nose of the "Oger" takes me back to Grandma's lessons on peach cobbler. Crushed stone fruit and baking spices, citrus zest and sweet cream waft out in tantalizing fashion. This seems to be the richest of the three, but is not unbalanced in any way. This is a sultry champagne, it feels like it sashays across the palate before you quite have a chance to take it all in. There is a flash of grapefruit blossom on the finish.

    Franck Bonville is one of my favorite direct imports and a go to when I need a solid Champagne that wont break the bank. His new single site series focuses on producing Champagne from the best plots in each village. He produces using all Grand Cru Chardonnay grapes and vinifies in all stainless to maintain verve. The "Pur Oger" is super clean and crisp on the palate with a refreshing, mineral driven finish. The nose has a crushed seashell and saline note with aromas of chalk, crunchy green pears, jasmine and freshly sliced apples. Just outstanding!

    Not arriving until late October of this year but, too memorable to not write about now! The third in a trio, which includes "Pur Mesnil" and "Pur Avize", this little gem smells more rich than the "Pur Mesnil" but, is actually more steely on the palate. Lemon curd and fresh lime are the main components and like its brethren, it has a long, lingering finish of chalk and minerals. Too special to miss out on!

    This is a delicate Champagne that stands alone. Sourced from Grand Cru Chardonnay from Oger, this Champagne is subtly elegant, an excellent wine to pair with a seafood dish. Aromas of mirabelle plum and muted golden apple lead to a steely, mineral driven palate with hints of barely perceptible, creamy walnut.
