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.

Appellation : Entre-deux-Mers

Wine style

Fresh and Fruity

Grape blend

Sauvignon blanc 75% / Sémillon 20% / Muscadelle 5%

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

Appareance

The 2019 Bonnet is a clear, brilliant pale yellow colour, with scattered green highlights.

Nose

The wonderfully intense nose reveals delicate aromas of white fruit (pear), mixed with notes of citrus fruit.

Mouth

Starts out beautifully straightforward on the palate. Round and full-bodied best describe the mid-palate. The finish is incredibly fresh, contributing a lovely long aftertaste. This wine is beautifully well-balanced. The palate expresses the same white fruit aromas found on the nose. This wine is best served with seafood platters, cod, or endives with ham.
