Always unwooded, Bon Vallon is stainless steel fermented but has extensive lees contact for texture and weight. Zippy and fresh, it has white pepper and lemon flavours, a dollop of crème fraîche and a crisp, refreshing aftertaste. 2020-24

An elegant, well-knit white, with vibrant acidity behind the lemon and apple flavors, revealing subtle hints of salted butter. The smooth texture and good focus give this charm and intrigue. Good length. Drink now through 2026.
Bon Vallon has a brisk and clean freshness leading into a wide spectrum of classic flavors including citrus, wild flowers and grilled nuts, with a nuanced minerality on the aftertaste. The succulent palate structure makes this an ideal food wine.
