Château Bonnet Réserve White

Château Bonnet Réserve is made from selected plots of just a few hectares from among the estate's 120 hectares. This white wine is produced sustainably from Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon grapes.


Chateau : Château Bonnet
2014 white Château Bonnet Réserve label
Appellation : Entre-deux-Mers

Wine style

Tender and Aromatic

Grape blend

Sauvignon 55% / Sémillon 45%

Weather

Winter and spring were very mild, but the summer of 2014 did not live up to our expectations: it rained heavily in July, and August was much cooler than usual. However, starting in September, a miraculous Indian summer with high temperatures, was very favourable to ripening.

Tasting Comment

Appearance

2014 white Château Bonnet Réserve has an attractive, very pale straw-yellow colour with silver highlights that emphasise the wine's brilliance and clarity.

Nose

Lively, elegant bouquet with great finesse. Lemony overtones with a touch of vanilla and white flowers (acacia blossom).

Mouth

The wine starts off quite smooth on the palate. It is full-bodied and velvety with great balance, as well as hints of vanilla and juicy pear flavours. Beautifully long aftertaste. Ideal with fish and soft-ripened cheeses.

2016 - 2020
