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

Merlot 50% / Cabernet Sauvignon 50%

Weather

The 2017 vintage was one of the earliest on record. The growing season was marked by a dry winter and spring (46% less rainfall than usual), accompanied by temperatures 2°C above average (except for the frost in April). This dry summer weather was ideal for ripening the seeds until late August.

Tasting Comment

Appareance

Brilliant, luminous, very pale pink colour in tune with current consumer demand.

Nose

Very attractive with a host of floral notes (white flowers), as well as delicate red fruit nuances that make it even more engaging.

Mouth

The fine impression one has from the bouquet follows through beautifully on the palate with good fruit, complex flavours, and good length. This rosé is ideal with ham and other cold cuts, as well as barbecued meats.
