NV (10's)

It is in the heart of Cramant, a Grand Cru village located in the famous « Côte des Blancs », that the Bonnaire house elaborate its wines since 1932. Following the 1930's crisis, Fernand Bouquemont - the founder of the house - decided to stop selling its grapes to negoce houses and to start making its own champagnes. It was immediately a success and its first «cuvée» was awarded a gold medal at the Concours Général Agricole de Paris.

When the Second World War came to an end, Fernand was soon joined by his son-in-law, André Bonnaire, coming also from a family of winemakers since several generations. He put all his effort and care to the wine growing and development of the vineyard. Then, in the late sixties, his son Jean-Louis joined the company too after graduating at the wine school in Avize.

Today, with a vineyard of more than 22 hectares, mainly growing chardonnay grapes in the best « crus » of Champagne, the adventure continues. After a fresh impetus in the early seventies in developing and modernizing the plant and contributing to the notoriety of the champagnes Bonnaire, Jean-Louis Bonnaire, present director, still watch over the success of the company with the same passion than when he started forty years ago. Today, a new generation already came in to support him in its venture, his two sons Jean-Etienne in charge of the production and Jean-Emmanuel in charge of marketing the wines. Rendez-vous is fixed in 2032 to celebrate Champagne Bonnaire's centenary!
