Château Tour de Bonnet White

Home > Our Wines > Our wines > Château Tour de Bonnet Blanc

Château Tour de Bonnet exists in white, rosé and red versions. This wine was created to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the construction of a belvedere by André Lurton's grandfather, Léonce Récapet.
The white wine is fresh, fruity and floral. It is an archetypical Entre-deux-Mers that goes beautifully with all fish and seafood dishes.

Appellation : Entre-deux-Mers

Wine style

Fresh and Fruity

Grape blend

Sauvignon 55% / Sémillon 30% / Muscadelle 15%

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

Lovely, brilliant, very pale yellow colour.

Nose

Showing complex aromas of tropical fruit and citrus, the bouquet manages to be both intense and ethereal. There are also hints of yellow peach, proving that the grapes were picked very ripe.

Mouth

Rich and full-bodied. Its freshness enables the flavours to last from beginning to end of the tasting. Although still very young, this wine has a soft, pleasant, velvety aftertaste. Balanced and charming, it is perfect as an aperitif, or with salads and seafood dishes.
