Divinus de Château Bonnet Red

Home > Our Wines > Our wines > Divinus de Château Bonnet Rouge

Divinus is Château Bonnet's prestige cuvée. Our winemaking team has taken the greatest of care every step of the way to produce a wine on a par with the great growths. Made from perfectly ripe grapes, this cuvée displays softer fruit, more body and more pronounced oak when young than the Château Bonnet Réserve.


Chateau : Château Bonnet
2012 red Divinus de Château Bonnet label
Appellation : Bordeaux

Wine style

Rich and Powerful

Grape blend

Merlot 80% / Cabernet Sauvignon 20%.

Weather

Spring was very trying, with considerable rainfall leading to fungal diseases of all sorts. This called for very close attention in the vines until the 14th of July, when the weather changed durably for the better.

Tasting Comment

Appareance

This cuvée of Château Bonnet has a brilliant, deep, crimson colour.

Nose

The complex, elegant bouquet is redolent of ripe fruit, with a cashew nut nuance.

Mouth

The tannin is round and silky. Although enjoyable at the present time, the wine will also be fine in 2 or 3 years. It is wonderful with grilled meats.
