Alexandre Bonnet Grande Réserve Brut is an inspired wine, made from Pinot Noir grapes. This wine has a cork closure and is one of a growing number in our list that can be enjoyed by vegan drinkers. Champagne Alexandre Bonnet, based in Les Riceys, has built up an amazing domaine of 47 hectares which is partly organic. The terroir’s rich history and microclimate are so unique that a specific AOC has been set up. Its unique Kimmeridgian clay-limestone soils are particularly favourable to Pinot Noir.
Chardonnay can produce quality wines in a wide range of climates, with a real varied style. In cool climates like Champagne or Chablis it produces a lean steely wine with pronounced acidity. In warmer climates it develops buttery, honey notes whereas hotter climates, it's richer in body with the flavour of tropical fruits.
- Green Apple
A temperamental thin skinned grape and difficult to grow, when produced of any quality it demands high prices. The thin skin means it's very light in colour body and tannin, it characteristically has searing acidity and full lingering flavours of raspberry, strawberry, cherry, violets and sweet spice.
Champagne Alexandre Bonnet has built up during many decades an amazing domaine of 45 hectares in Les Riceys where Pinot Noir thrives. The terroir’s rich history and microclimate are so unique that a specific AOC has been set up. Its unique Kimmeridgian clay-limestone soils are particularly favourable to Pinot Noir. Vineyards are planted to blend in to the local scenery by alternating vines and woodland, through partial grass cover and by planting hazel and rose trees.
