The Champagne Nerd: tasting Bonnet Gilmert Champagne Blanc de Blanc Gran Cru
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.
The final judgment on this Bonnet Gilmert Champagne Blanc de Blanc Grand Cru?
It is a well-cut Champagne, a smooth wine that knows his stuff, with great naturalness, suitable for casual evenings, fish dinners and of course for a Champagne cocktail.
Considering the cost, 30 €, it is a good deal or a great gift for not too nerdy relatives and friends.
