Château Tour de Bonnet White

Home > Our Wines > Our wines > Château Tour de Bonnet Blanc

Château Tour de Bonnet exists in white, rosé and red versions. This wine was created to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the construction of a belvedere by André Lurton's grandfather, Léonce Récapet.
The white wine is fresh, fruity and floral. It is an archetypical Entre-deux-Mers that goes beautifully with all fish and seafood dishes.

Tasting Comment

Appareance

Brilliant pale-yellow colour with occasional green highlights.

Nose

For the 2018 vintage, Sauvignon Blanc reveals its intense, powerful character on the bouquet, marked by citrus, tropical fruit (pineapple) and yellow peach aromas.

Mouth

The pronounced fruity nose carries through to the round, generous palate, which serves as a testimony to high-quality, perfectly ripe grapes. The aftertaste is long and tangy with a particularly pleasant aromatic finish. This wine is ideal paired with oysters, grapefruit with crab, tuna tartare, and goat's cheese.

Ratings and reviews

Le Guide Hachette - 2020 Edition : 
04.09.2017

A tremendously fresh cuvée with lemon, boxwood, and fern notes emblematic of Sauvignon Blanc. It's liveliness on the palate never fails to impress. Best enjoyed between 2020 and 2022.
