Château Tour de Bonnet Rosé

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

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 rosé has a bouquet with floral nuances as well as a velvety texture on the palate with just the right amount of freshness on the aftertaste. Very long, pleasant finish.

Wine style

Fresh and Fruity

Grape blend

Cabernet Sauvignon 50% / Merlot 43% / Sémillon 7%

Weather

2021 was marked by very capricious weather: heavy rainfall in the spring, a frost episode in April causing major damage... But warm days and cool nights followed one another from mid-August onwards, ensuring the success of the vintage.

Tasting Comment

Appearance

Colour is a very pale pink, slightly salmon-coloured, with some silver reflections.

Nose

Very aromatic, the nose is charming, with a beautiful intensity, mixing notes of small red fruits and flowers (rose).

Mouth

Palate is balanced, combining suppleness and freshness. A lot of delicacy for this rosé which offers us a pleasant fruitiness, with notes of red fruits, slightly acid (English candy style). Nice length. It can be enjoyed chilled, as an aperitif, on a platter of cold meats, a pizza or, in the summer, on salads or grilled meats.
