FRANCK BONVILLE

Franck Bonville today is run by Olivier Bonville, the great grandson of Franck who acts as the proprietary of his family's estate. With 20 hectares of vineyards in the villages of Avize, Oger, Cramant, and Mesnil, Bonville's wines are made entirely from Grand Cru-level chardonnay and therefore labeled as Blanc de Blanc. Their wines always have a wonderful richness balanced by an incredibly chalky minerality that pierces through the chardonnay flavor. The standard Grand Cru Blanc de Blanc is one of the most popular and successful wines in the history of K&L, a perpetual customer favorite that our Champagne shoppers come back to time and time agin.
