An up-and-rising domaine in Meursault, Bernard-Bonin has been managed by a lovely couple Nicolas Benard and Veronique Bonin since 1998. They own a 7-hectare domaine in which they have carefully crafted their wines to a very high standard, working exclusively with Chardonnay mainly in Meursault with a few small plots in Puligny-Montrachet. Grapes are picked earlier than usual to retain the acidity and balance out the fat of Meursault, vinified then aged 15-18 months in oak barrels. They take on a minimal intervention approach using natural yeasts, no enzymes, no filtering, minimal sulfur, etc throughout the process to ensure their wines can express themselves. They are known to produce fresh, rich, mineral and vibrant styles of Meursault.
Qualities have been massively improved year after year, both Vintage 2019 & 2020 are fascinating for Chardonnay that the wines are filled up with balanced fruits and acidity, it is a remarkable vintage to compare with Vintage 2014 and 2017. We are able to offer a tight allocation of Les Tillets 2019 and a new cuvee from Vintage 2020 – Meursault La Rencontre which comes from two terroirs “ Les Pelles” and “Sous La Velle”, both of these plots are planted with old vines of over 75 years old giving the wine with power and complexity. Only small quantities are available
