Château Goumin White

Located on a slope facing due south, Château Goumin has a splendid terroir. The vines grow on clay-limestone soil to produce very delicate dry white Entre-Deux-Mers that stand out thanks to their smoothness and finesse.


Chateau : Château Bonnet

Appellation : Entre-deux-Mers

Weather

Spring was very trying, with considerable rainfall leading to fungal diseases of all sorts. This called for very close attention in the vines until the 14th of July, when the weather changed durably for the better.
