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

Rich and Powerful

Grape blend

Merlot 50% / Cabernet Sauvignon 50%.

Weather

The main features this year were humidity and cold. There were heavy rains in April and May (during the vegetative cycle) and a cool summer, especially in June and August. Warm, dry weather in September enhanced ripening.

Tasting Comment

Appareance

Deep, bright garnet.

Nose

Spicy vanilla notes on the nose from the oak are dominant now, but there are already fine fruit tones which will intensify with aging.

Mouth

The full body shows the excellent quality of this vintage in Bordeaux, showing structure and opulence, while its astonishing balance indicates perfectly ripe tannins at harvest, whose licorice character adds elegance and complexity, and a persistent finish. Drink with red meat, grilled or casseroled.

This has maintained its beautiful crimson rim, showing a young wine that has a long life ahead. From the Andre Lurton stable, there is a bite of extraction, but well layered with vanilla and mocha. An equal blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, this is modern in style, but very appealing.

15.00 / 20

A beautifully exuberant and refined cuvée with an exquisitely well-defined and pure bouquet showing hints of fruit and violets. Fresh and soft on the palate with elegant tannin and good oak. A joyto drink as of now ! 2010-2015.
