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.


Chateau : Château Bonnet
2015 white Château Bonnet label
Appellation : Entre-deux-Mers

Wine style

Fresh and Fruity

Grape blend

Sauvignon 55% / Sémillon 30% / Muscadelle 15%

Weather

2015 was the third warmest year since 1900... Drought conditions, above-average monthly temperatures and sunshine (in the first half of the year), cool nights and hot weather in August accompanying véraison (colour change) were all ideal for the vines!

Tasting Comment

Appareance

Attractive pale yellow colour with green highlights.

Nose

Good concentration with hints of white flowers, as well as tropical fruit and grapefruit. A Sauvignon Blanc showing some varietal character and an subtle aftertaste.

Mouth

2015 white Château Bonnet starts out smooth and elegant, with notes of fresh citrus and gooseberry.  There are also floral overtones such as acacia blossom. The acidity is well-integrated and in balance. There is a beautiful long finish. This wine is enjoyable with friends as an aperitif, or with all sorts of fish and seafood dishes.
