2013 vintage at Château Bonnet : retrospective and first impressions...

Vendanges château Bonnet 1
 
   

More than elsewhere in Bordeaux, the capricious and occasionally brutal weather in 2013 will long be remembered. This was a year of considerable tension, and it was necessary to be prepared to take action in the vineyard and cellars at all times of the day or night...

However, this will not have been in vain, and our oenologists are confident, after tasting the wines, that all the worry and hard work were well worth it!

What are the hallmarks of the 2013 vintage?

A slightly higher proportion of Muscadelle for the whites and a beautiful, pale colour for the 2013 rosés…

   

White Château Bonnet has a higher-than-usual percentage of Muscadelle, but not to the extent that it has overtaken Sauvignon Blanc, which remains the dominant variety.

Please rest assured: the taste profile and personality that make this wine so charming and well-liked are all there in 2013!

   

As for the rosé wine, Château Bonnet consists, as always, of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, which contribute their unique range of aromas and flavours.

The colour is a beautiful brilliant colour that is already a treat to behold. The nose is redolent of fresh blackcurrant with subtle hints of pink grapefruit. This wine will undoubtedly be a delight to drink!
