Château Tour de Bonnet White

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

Shining, pale green highlights.

Nose

Early nose of acacia blossom followed by intense aromas of yellow fruit and citrus, powerful even before agitation.

Mouth

Upfront, the first tangy notes are rapidly enveloped by an astonishing richness that denotes the maturity of the grapes this vintage. More intense, lingering fruit, with zesty grapefruit notes on a long, balanced finish – a wine to drink with shellfish and grilled fish, as well as certain ripened cheeses. (January, 2012)

A blend of Sauvignon, Sémillon and Muscadelle, this 2011 shows a classy pale colour with green highlights. The nose develops an intense bouquet of white flowers, citrus and tropical fruits, echoed on the melting, smooth palate and leading into a lovely fresh finish, both balanced and persistent. Drink now,  with quenelle of pike.
