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.

Wine style

Fresh and Fruity

Grape blend

Sauvignon 55% / Sémillon 30% / Muscadelle 15%

Weather

2015 was the third warmest year since 1900... Drought conditions, above-average monthly temperatures and sunshine (in the first half of the year), cool nights and hot weather in August accompanying véraison (colour change) were all ideal for the vines!

Tasting Comment

Appareance

Lovely, brilliant, pale yellow colour with green highlights.

Nose

Good intensity with white flower, tropical fruit, and grapefruit nuances. The Sauvignon Blanc varietal character comes through on the aftertaste.

Mouth

Starts out quite smooth and elegant, with notes of fresh citrus and gooseberry, going on to reveal hints of flowers such as acacia blossom. Good balance and acidity, with a beautiful long finish. Makes a wonderful aperitif, and accompanies all sorts of fish and seafood dishes.
