Domaine de la Bongran Question

Postby Jim Grow » Sun Apr 07, 2013 7:20 pm

At one time Jean Thevenet's Domaine de la Bongran Chardonnay was my favorite French Chardonnay, especially in those years that showed some botrytis while remaining totally dry. I never see this wine in Ohio and my last bottle was the 1996. Does any winery from anywhere make a Chardonnay in this style that I might find in my home state? I could order it from Calvert-Woodley but would prefer to find something similar locally.

I remember those wines fondly, haven't seen them locally in quite some time, used to buy them whenever I wd see them....Not aware of anyone making chards in that style these days.
