Château Tour de Bonnet Rosé

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

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 rosé has a bouquet with floral nuances as well as a velvety texture on the palate with just the right amount of freshness on the aftertaste. Very long, pleasant finish.

Wine style

Fresh and Fruity

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

The pale soft pink hue with brilliant, slightly salmon-coloured highlights reflects short maceration.

Nose

The dominant aroma is peach, complemented by subtle floral notes, such as jasmine.

Mouth

Delicious and quite enjoyable on the palate with hints of redcurrant and citrus. The particularly fine balance between acidity and an impression of sweetness confers decided elegance. Attractive, easy-going 2006 Tour de Bonnet rosé has a fine long aftertaste. It is ideal on a summer's evening with friends, at a barbecue, with melon and Parma ham, with seafood, etc.
