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.

Tasting Comment

Appearance

Deep ruby-red colour scattered with purple highlights.

Nose

The nose is very attractive and fruity, revealing a delicious array of fresh fruit notes (cherry), underpinned by subtle hints of spice.

Mouth

This beautiful 2018 Bonnet starts out straightforward on the palate, becoming very round, delicious and sweet. Fresh red fruit aromas (cherry) follow through to the palate. This well-balanced wine is ideal paired with grilled red meats and cheese platters.
