Château Bonnet White

Home > Our Wines > Our wines > Château Bonnet Blanc

Very Sauvignon, this 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.


Chateau : Château Bonnet
label of 2017 white Château Bonnet
Appellation : Entre-deux-Mers

Wine style

Fresh and Fruity

Grape blend

Sauvignon blanc 60% / Sémillon 20 % / Muscadelle 20%.

Weather

The 2017 vintage was one of the earliest on record. The growing season was marked by a dry winter and spring (46% less rainfall than usual), accompanied by temperatures 2°C above average (except for the frost in April). This dry summer weather was ideal for ripening the seeds until late August.

Tasting Comment

Appareance

Crystal-clear, pale colour that is both fresh and attractive.

Nose

Remarkably intense fruity aromas Very ethereal bouquet with white flower and citrus nuances that fill the glass.

Mouth

Beautiful balance between roundness and freshness on the palate with an astonishingly long aftertaste. The lemony freshness on the finish goes beautifully with seafood, although this wine is also delicious on its own, as an aperitif.
