Château Bonnet White

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.

Tasting Comment

Appareance

Almost transparent, with dancing green highlights.

Nose

Once again, this Entre-deux-Mers explodes with fruit. Intense, complex notes of ripe tropical fruits open out with aeration.

Mouth

On the palate, the first impression is fine ripe grapes in a fresh yet opulent framework. Persistent fruit salad character. A lovely wine, to drink with the traditional seafood platter but also fish or white meats.

Ratings and reviews

Terre de Vins :

 - Note : 
15.00 / 20

In his eighties, but as sprightly as ever, André Lurton is viscerally attached to Château Bonnet, a magnificent 270-hectare estate in the Entre-Deux-Mers. The wine: tremendously refined on both the nose and the palate. Very pure fruit with beautiful mineral flavours and floral nuances. Full-boded, smooth, very aromatic and deliciously fresh.
