The Bonvilles own 20 hectares, all of them in the Grand Cru communes of Cramant, Avize and Oger. Olivier Bonville knows it is a privilege to work with these splendid vineyards. He has switched to natural cultivation, and he fine-tunes his cuvées year after year. His wines are often mentioned in the same breath as the biggest names of the Côte des Blancs.
The heart of Olivier Bonville's vineyards is in Avize, where he owns fifteen hectares of vines. Avize stands for harmonious, elegant, ripe-fruited wines that can age for an extended period. Olivier likes to draw comparisons with Saint-Julien in Bordeaux. Avize produces champagne that combines all the positive characteristics of great sparkling wine.
Olivier's style combines ripe, unadulterated fruit with a soft texture. The multiplicity of sites means that the wines are always very complex, and they gain even more with further ageing.
