The Domain: On the steepest slopes of Champagne at the gateway to Burgundy, the renowned Kimmeridgian limestone contributes its unique aromas to the wines made in the three appellations of Les Riceys. Domaine Alexandre Bonnet produces some of the most highly prised wines in the Côte des Bar.

The village is nestled in the far reaches of the Laignes valley, on the borders of the Côte des Bar between Champagne and Burgundy. The rolling hillsides emerged during the Jurassic period and growers have been tending its vineyards patiently for centuries. Its name and history are plural, but its reputation is unique: Les Riceys. It is the most sought-after cru in the Côte des Bar, and the excellence of its Pinot Noirs has earnt three AOCs: Champagne, Coteaux Champenois and Rosé des Riceys. Domaine Alexandre Bonnet has become the symbol and emblem of this unique terroir.
