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.

Appellation : Bordeaux

Wine style

Fresh and Fruity

Grape blend

33% Merlot / 66% Cabernet Sauvignon

Weather

There was record rainfall during the first half of 2013. Spring was very cool, even cold (May and June), and this caused a major delay in vine growth (flowering). Much more clement weather (warm and sunny) arrived in July and lasted until the harvest.

Tasting Comment

Appareance

The color is clear pale pink.

Nose

On the nose, there are subtle aromas of blackcurrant and peony.

Mouth

The smooth, round mouth feel is enhanced by a tiny amount of CO2. Cellarmaster Laurent Le Dez excels in making this wine, and his charming, seductive 2013 is delicious with delicatessen meats, grilled white meats, and pizza.
