Château Bonnet Réserve Red

Château Bonnet is one of Bordeaux’s consistently reliable wines. Vignobles André Lurton are committed to making wines that are both fullbodied and balanced, like this Reserve cuvee, which typifies classic Bordeaux.  Its faultless pedigree is revealed in its elegant balance, depth and charm.

Wine style

Full and Complex

Grape blend

Merlot 50% / Cabernet Sauvignon 50%.

Weather

Although the first quarter of 2006 was cold and wet (precipitation in March was 3 to 4 times greater than average), this was above all a hot year – in fact, the second hottest since 1950. There was a brief period of extreme heat in July, but the month of September was very mild and dry.

Tasting Comment

Appareance

Château Bonnet Red 2006 glows deep garnet in the glass.

Nose

The nose of ripe red fruits is given complemented by elegant toasty oak notes.

Mouth

Fruity and smooth upfront, it still shows great freshness, and elegant tannins, whose melting structure complements the vanilla note from its time in barrel, for an ensemble which is classy and complex. The wine goes beautifully with grilled red meats. It will be delightful until 2015 and thereafter.

 - Note : 
from 85.00 to 88.00 / 100

Has a solid core of fruit, with plenty of spice and berry character. This is juicy, with a medium finish. Well done for the vintage. (J. Suckling)
