Why We Love It...

We’ve offered some of this before, and they got scooped up faster than Zach Bryan tickets sell out. Champagne Bonnet-Gilmert has been farming chardonnay on their pristine 7-hectare plot in Oger for five generations, but they source the rest of their fruit from some of the top plots in the Côte des Blancs, perhaps the greatest place on earth to grow fine chardonnay. Nearly 50% off, this 96-point Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs is made of reserve wines from the Le-Mesnil-sur-Oger, Oger, and Avize, and does it ever deliver!

Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs of this caliber and pedigree for under $45 is basically a mythical creature. We’re never ones to boast, yet… this sort of deal is something even we can’t quite believe we pulled off. The La Reserve is based entirely on chardonnay, comprised of mostly Champagne Bonnet-Gilmert’s top lots of estate fruit from Oger, in the heart of the Côte des Blancs, plus complimentary lots from their neighbors’ esteemed parcels in close-by Avize and Les Mesnil. Aude Vauban is the fifth generation to run the estate, alongside her cousin, Carla Bonnet – each working together to skillfully source and blend fruit from these prime villages, enhancing the final depth and complexity of every cuvée they craft.

The wine’s straw yellow hue with golden highlights are met by aromas of delicate flowers, white-fleshed fruit, and vibrant citrus. It’s zesty and zippy on the palate, with tangerines, lemon balm, golden apples, spiced pears, and dried herbs with a wild mushroom savory element. Sharp and bright on the finish, with an expansive mouthfeel and a tingly tickle that lingers on and on – this is some seriously fun stuff with a price/quality ratio that’s hard to beat. 

My humblest advice? Grab three before they’re gone forever…which also gets you free shipping! We scored a deal on this one, but in truth, dear Bubbles Monsters, we don’t have nearly as much as we would like. Pocket these while you can, and you’ll thank me later!
