Château Bonnet Red

Home > Our Wines > Our wines > Château Bonnet Rouge

Thanks to expressive fruit – but without excessive concentration – Château Bonnet's red wine is unquestionably charming. In fact, it is a benchmark in Bordeaux.The wine is best enjoyed on the young side, although the quality tannin ensures good ageing for several year.


Chateau : Château Bonnet
label of 2019 Château Bonnet red
Appellation : Bordeaux

Wine style

Tender and Aromatic

Grape blend

Merlot 60% / Cabernet Sauvignon 40%

Weather

2019 was marked by a fairly mild winter, resulting in early bud break. Spring rainfall was scarce and drought conditions set in in early summer. Rainfall in August provided a welcome relief for winegrowers.

Tasting Comment

Appearance

Brilliant colour, nice cherry red with some garnet highlights.

Nose

Expressive, the nose open out notes of ripe red fruits (raspberry, redcurrant), very tasty, with some toasted notes.

Mouth

Pleasant, very supple and silky on the palate. This Château Bonnet 2019 is well balanced and accessible for immediate tasting. There are gourmet notes of fresh red fruit (Morello cherry), but also dried fruit; all of this is associated with aromas of mocha and chocolate. Tannins are present, but round and pleasant. The finish is marked by slightly more woody notes. This is a wine to be enjoyed with grilled meats, but also with lentil soup, quiche lorraine or chicken sauté with mustard and carrots.
