DharMag August 2016 The Champagne Nerd: tasting Bonnet Gilmert Champagne Blanc de Blanc Gran Cru

Champagne Bonnet Gilmert Blanc de Blanc Gran Cru wine tasting, description The Champagne Bonnet Gilmert Blanc de Blanc Grand Cru is a very good wine, well structured and with a classic bouquet that enhances a bevy of fine, mineral and floral scents enveloped in refined yeasts, which have worked properly.

Denis Bonnet runs his own winery in Oger, a oasis of vineyards, where he only grows Chardonnay.

The style of the Champagne Bonnet Gilmert Blanc de Blanc is all about drinkability, in this wine the chalice will find a tireless companion, always ready to caress the palate with a well-dosed freshness and minerality that lights up and makes the wine crisp and well balanced.

Do not expect a stellar structure, but rather a continuous gallantry, a wink, a welter of precise and very pleasant scents ranging from white caramelized fruits to camphor to still move to recalls of baked brioche. All punctuated with great elegance: composure is the key of this nectar.
