Château Bonnet White

Home > Our Wines > Our wines > Château Bonnet Blanc

Very Sauvignon, this wine of André Lurton at an affordable price, is an example of "everyday wine": succulent aromas of pear and tropical fruit, nervous and expressive on the palate, clean finish and well-defined . Intelligent, vibrant easy to drink yet.


Chateau : Château Bonnet
label of 2020 Château Bonnet white
Appellation : Entre-deux-Mers

Wine style

Fresh and Fruity

Grape blend

Sauvignon blanc 78% / Sémillon 22%

Weather

2020 was marked by very mild temperatures and contrasting precipitation: heavy spring rainfall was followed by an intense summer drought. The fairly mild winter led to early bud break. The summer heat gave way to cool nights in late August, ideal for ripening grapes.

Tasting Comment

Appearance

This 2020 white Bonnet is a brilliant, very pale yellow colour with silver highlights.

Nose

The bouquet is particularly expressive, revealing citrus and white floral notes (broom flowers).

Mouth

Starts out instantly appealing on the palate, becoming fresh, wonderfully rich and delicious, laced with slightly acidic citrus flavours. This wine goes beautifully with marinated prawns, oysters, or even mussels in white wine.
