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

While January and February were colder than average, 2009 was nevertheless a warm year (one of the warmest in a century). There was a great deal of sunshine and a remarkable drought during the summer months.

Tasting Comment

Appareance

Very intense purple with crimson tints.

Nose

The initial impression on the nose is vanilla, closely followed by an intense panoply of oaky aromas. The ripe fruit appears gradually, delicate at first then more powerful after agitation.

Mouth

Opulent, smooth and silky upfront, but the tannic concentration is right there, unusually for this level in the range, a testament to the quality of the vintage and the skill of the teams at Bonnet. The finish is as long as it is full-flavoured. A wine to grace the most exalted cellar, before accompanying veal roulades or undercut of beef with shallot confit.

Ratings and reviews

Château Bonnet Réserve, AOC Bordeaux Rouge – a more up-market version of Bonnet Classique – packs a lot of punch, especially because the 2009 vintage is particularly successful in Bordeaux. Made mostly from Merlot, this was aged in barrel for twelve months. It is beautifully concentrated and full-boded on the finish. This powerful wine is well-suited to grilled pork chops or stuffed escalope of veal. Vignobles André Lurton, who produce this wine, have a fine reputation. They also have a solid experience and are willing to take a look at the latest technical innovations in winemaking. (César Compadre)

Deep garnet in colour, nose of red fruits blending with spicy, licorice notes. Soft upfront, the palate shows a delightful opulence and fruit core with toasty nuances, and velvety tannins still a touch austere on the finish.  Will gain balance over the next two years in bottle.
