Champagne Franck Bonville Pur Mesnil 2015
Part of the Pur Terroir series, 2015 Pur Mesnil expresses the terroir of the hallowed Grand Cru village of Le Mesnil sur Oger.
Chardonnay grapes from 3 plots are chosen to provide a balance of the characteristics produced by different soil types with more or less concentration of chalk. The cuvée is tiraged under natural cork sealed with a staple and then hand disgorged.
Les Mesnil sur Oger
"We have made this cuvée from a selection of 3 plots, mainly located down the hill of Le Mesnil sur Oger. After more than 5 years of ageing under natural cork, we find it straight, well-structured with a great personality.
The movement starts of light floral, vegetal and vanilla perfumes that awake our senses. An intense freshness, typical of Le Mesnil’s wines, carries this champagne. A rich, coated and smooth mouth cradles it. A gourmet but delicate wine that unveils its shimmering side, without being aggressive, for a frank and dynamic balance.
The fresh and saline long ending resonates all the essence of Le Mesnil sur Oger’s terroir to slowly fade into a chalky memory."
Enjoy as an apéritif, or paired with fresh seafood.
While drinking beautifully right now, this Champagne can be cellared for up to 5 years.
