Château Bonnet Red

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 château Bonnet red 2008
Appellation : Bordeaux

Wine style

Full and Complex

Grape blend

Merlot 50% / Cabernet Sauvignon 50%.

Weather

The main features this year were humidity and cold. There were heavy rains in April and May (during the vegetative cycle) and a cool summer, especially in June and August. Warm, dry weather in September enhanced ripening.

Tasting Comment

Appareance

Bonnet Red 2008 is bright with lots of violet highlights.

Nose

A beautiful medley of red and black fruit aromas.

Mouth

Very expressive today, the attack is full of fruit and the mid-palate is rich and round. Its freshness and tannins melt with the fruit notes and create a long finish. This is a perfect match for summer dishes, salads, pizzas, meats or seafood tartars.

Always a great value, this warm and fruity wine is immediately accessible and drinkable. It has fine red berry fruits, a good core of tannins and just the right fruit acidity. Drink now.
