Champagne Girard-Bonnet - A Mi-Chemin Grand Cru NV
Paul Girard embodies both of his parents’ ancestry and brings new life to Chardonnay through a stunning selection of Côte des Blanc Champagnes. Merging the Girard & Bonnet Estates in Mesnil sur Oger he works towards creating a grower-maker brand in honour of his origins. This cuvee is 50% vintage harvest, 50% reserve wines.
The NV Extra-Brut Blanc de Blancs A Mi-Chemin is fabulous. Bright, energetic and wonderfully finessed, the A Mi-Chemin impresses with its fine overall balance. Crushed rocks, spice, dried flowers, herbs and citrus oil infuse the A Mi-Chemin with tons of nuance as well as complexity. I admire the transparent energy and precision here. Best of all, this should be a terrific value. 92 points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous.
