Château Bonnet Red

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 château Bonnet 2010 red
Appellation : Bordeaux

Wine style

Tender and Aromatic

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

Brilliant garnet-red colour with very luminous highlights.

Nose

Delicious, with very ripe red fruit aromas. A clear-cut, well-defined and immediately attractive bouquet.

Mouth

The lovely aromas follow through on the palate, which shows a very seductive roundness. The tannin is smooth and complements the fruit. This wine is fine to enjoy as of now with meat or poultry.

What a success! Very ripe red and black fruit aromas on the nose with spicy, mineral nuances that follow through onto the palate . Concentrated, with silky tannin. Great balance.
