Château Bonnet Red

Home > Our Wines > Our wines > Château Bonnet Rouge

Thanks to expressive fruit – but without excessive concentration – Château Bonnet's red wine is unquestionably charming. In fact, it is a benchmark in Bordeaux.The wine is best enjoyed on the young side, although the quality tannin ensures good ageing for several year.


Chateau : Château Bonnet
label of 2016 red Château Bonnet
Appellation : Bordeaux

Wine style

Tender and Aromatic

Grape blend

Merlot 50 % / Cabernet Sauvignon 50%

Weather

2016 was one of the finest vintages in the past 20 years. Winter was exceptionally wet and mild, and it rained a great deal in spring until June. However, the weather changed radically in mid-June, turning warm and quite dry, with cool nights. Ideal conditions for growing excellent wine grapes!

Tasting Comment

Appareance

This 2016 red Bonnet rouge 2016 has a lovely clear, vivacious, red colour.

Nose

The nose is fruity and very marked by Cabernet Sauvignon, with succulent overtones of red fruit (strawberry, redcurrant) and a hint of liquorice.

Mouth

Smooth and fresh from the very first on the palate. This round, delicious wine has great Cabernet Sauvignon varietal character, with very ripe and slightly jammy red fruit (cherry) flavours. This 2016 Bonnet is truly elegant with a lovely balance between freshness and concentration. It can be enjoyed as of now with steak, fondues, and vegetable dishes.
