Château Tour de Bonnet Grande Cuvée Red

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. Aged with special care and attention partly in new oak barrels, a new prestige cuvée, Château Tour de Bonnet Grande Cuvée, now adds to the estate’s range. It will delight people who love rich, powerful wines. It has a bouquet of ripe fruit with hints of vanilla and is smooth and perfectly balanced on the palate!

Wine style

Rich and Powerful

Grape blend

Cabernet Sauvignon 50% / Merlot 50%.

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.

Tasting Comment

Appareance

This wine is a lovely, brilliant, deep-red colour.

Nose

Its power is expressed in its bouquet, featuring hints of fresh black-berry fruit (blackcurrant). Subtle vanilla aromas gradually make way for fine oaky and toasty nuances.

Mouth

The fruit is very present on the palate. Its softness is enlivened by hints of blackcurrants and blackberries. The fresh fruit aromas blend deliciously with oaky and spicy nuances. Its structure is both supple and robust. If you taste this wine young, it will benefit from being decanted. It makes an ideal accompaniment to grilled meats.
