Olivier Bonville runs this Côte des Blancs estate, originally set up by his grandfather Franck, a grower in Avize. The Bonvilles now have an unrivalled domaine in Avize, Oger and Cramant, totalling more than 20 hectares of Chardonnay vineyards, all classified Grand Cru. Franck Bonville champagnes are all Blanc de Blancs.
Their son Gilles was willing to commit to the family company with his wife Ingrid. They both modernized the work tools and it is Olivier, third generation, who currently carries on the family adventure with his parents still by his side.
