Discover the Maison Franck Bonville and its fine Champagnes in our online store
At the beginning of the twentieth century Alfred Bonville was buying plots of vineyards that had been destroyed by the phylloxera a few years earlier. Crazy or visionary, the Bonville family has been specializing in Champagne Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru in Avize for four generations. In fact, after the Second World War, his son Franck began marketing the cuvées of the same name, continuing to expand the area owned by the company.
The Franck Bonville company owns 15 hectares of vineyards divided into 77 plots within three classified Grand Crus: Avize, Oger and Le Mesnil sur Oger . The intrinsic quality of the grapes is enhanced by hand harvesting, only when and if perfectly ripe. 50 barriques are purchased every year to make Les Belles Voger and used to store the reserve wines to produce the liqueur de tirage . The underground tunnels built in the 19th century are dug out of pure chalk and guarantee constant temperature and humidity throughout the year. A minimum aging of two and a half years is necessary to appreciate the quality of Brut Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs , while an aging of at least six years is necessary for Cuvée Prestige and Vintage Cuvée .
