Château Bonnet Red

Show in EnglishShow in French
03.02.2016

Thanks to expressive fruit – but without excessive concentration – Château Bonnet's red wine is unquestionably charming. In fact, it is a benchmark in Bordeaux.The wine is best enjoyed on the young side, although the quality tannin ensures good ageing for several year.

Appellation : Bordeaux
Chateau : Château Bonnet

Vintage

2012

Wine style

Tender and Aromatic

Grape blend

Merlot 50 % / Cabernet Sauvignon 50%.

Weather

Spring was very trying, with considerable rainfall leading to fungal diseases of all sorts. This called for very close attention in the vines until the 14th of July, when the weather changed durably for the better.

Tasting Comment

Appareance

Intense ruby-red colour with purple highlights indicating its youthfulness.

Nose

The nose is beautifully concentrated and reminiscent of mixed ripe red fruits. Notes of blackcurrant and cherry are followed by spicy nuances.

Mouth

The wine is round on the palate as well as quite tannic, which accounts for its attractive structure. Fresh fruit flavours, such as Morello cherry, combine with more ripe strawberry nuances. This wine is clearly pleasurable and ideal with roast beef or double cheese cannelloni in a mushroom and tomato sauce.

Consumption period

2015 - 2020

Château Bonnet White

Show in EnglishShow in French
03.02.2016

Tis wine of André Lurton at an affordable price, is an example of "everyday wine": succulent aromas of pear and tropical fruit, nervous and expressive on the palate, clean finish and well-defined . Intelligent, vibrant easy to drink yet.

Appellation : Entre-deux-Mers
Chateau : Château Bonnet

Vintage

2014

Wine style

Elegant and Fruity

Grape blend

Sauvignon 52% / Sémillon 33% / Muscadelle 15%

Weather

Winter and spring were very mild, but the summer of 2014 did not live up to our expectations: it rained heavily in July, and August was much cooler than usual. However, starting in September, a miraculous Indian summer with high temperatures, was very favourable to ripening.

Tasting Comment

Appareance

In 2014, Château Bonnet produced a wine in keeping with its legendary reputation. This archetypal Entre-Deux-Mers has brilliant yellow-green highlights.

Nose

It is a pleasant mixture of citrus and broom-flower aromas, with rich, ripe-grape overtones.

Mouth

Its softness on the palate is underpinned by a delightful freshness. The overall impression of balance follows through in a long aftertaste redolent of grapefruit and white blossoms. It is ready to be enjoyed now, by itself or as an accompaniment to seafood.

Consumption period

2015 - 2016

Divinus de Château Bonnet Red

Show in EnglishShow in French
03.02.2016

Divinus is Château Bonnet's prestige cuvée. Our winemaking team has taken the greatest of care every step of the way to produce a wine on a par with the great growths. Made from perfectly ripe grapes, this cuvée displays softer fruit, more body and more pronounced oak when young than the Château Bonnet Réserve.

Appellation : Bordeaux
Chateau : Château Bonnet

Vintage

2010

Wine style

Rich and Powerful

Grape blend

Merlot 80% / Cabernet Sauvignon 20%.

Weather

Winter was harsh (many days with frost) and spring rather chilly. There was a great deal of sunshine in 2010 and a long period of drought from 21 June to late September, which was favourable for ripening.

Tasting Comment

Appareance

This 2010 Divinus has a remarkably intense colour with beautiful garnet-red highlights.

Nose

Château Bonnet's premium cuvée has a wide range of powerful aromas: cooked red fruit, chocolate, and vanilla.

Mouth

The wine starts off quite smooth and soft on the palate. The rich, generous, and velvety tannin is accompanied by flavours of prune, blackberry, and blackcurrant. The finish is long and well-balanced, providing an excellent match with veal, duck, and cheese.

Consumption period

2015 - 2021
