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.


Chateau : Château Bonnet
label château Bonnet réserve 2010 red
Appellation : Bordeaux

Wine style

Rich and Powerful

Grape blend

Merlot 50 % / Cabernet Sauvignon 50%.

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

The colour is lively, bright and scintillating.

Nose

The nose is powerful, with strong fruity notes such as cherry. The oak, still present, will mellow down in a few weeks and add a vanilla complexity to the ensemble.

Mouth

The palate is soft and round, with good balance. The finish is ample, almost fleshy, with spicy, tarry notes lingering with intriguing intensity which places it among the best-loved wines of the appellation. This is an easy-drinking wine to enjoy with red meats as well as grilled poultry and mature cheeses.

 - Note :

André Lurton, the owner of famous châteaux in the Pessac-Léognan appellation (Couhins-Lurton, La Louvière), also produces delicious wines from the Bordeaux appellation. A shining example of the superb 2010 vintage, this wine reflects the even balance between Merlot and Cabernets. There is a fruity bouquet (blueberry, blackcurrant and morello cherry) and rich, round vanilla, flavours on the palate, as well as velvety tannin. Lovely fresh finish. Enjoyable now or in two years' time with duck breast.
