Château Tour de Bonnet Red

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

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 deep red colour is extremely attractive and the smooth, delicious and very soft tannin provides backbone to the long, elegant and fruity aftertaste.

Wine style

Soft and Sensual

Grape blend

Merlot 60% / Cabernet Sauvignon 40%

Weather

2019 was marked by a fairly mild winter, resulting in early bud break. Spring rainfall was scarce and drought conditions set in in early summer. Rainfall in August provided a welcome relief for winegrowers.

Tasting Comment

Appearance

Attractive cherry red colour, brilliant, with garnet highlights.

Nose

Very expressive, the nose is marked by tasty notes of ripe red fruit (raspberry, redcurrant) to which is added a light toasty note.

Mouth

The palate is very supple and silky. This wine is very pleasant and particularly well balanced, which makes it drinkable now. Notes of fresh red fruit (cherry, redcurrant, raspberry), but also of dried fruit blend harmoniously with chocolate aromas. The tannins are present, but not excessive, well blended. The finish is a little more woody. This Château Tour de Bonnet will be the ideal companion for a cheeseburger, a cordon bleu of turkey or spaghetti bolognaises.

Deep ruby colour with brown highlights. Nose of jammy fruit (wild strawberry, cherry, blackcurrant), with soft spices in support. Supple mouth revealing a pleasant fruity dimension. Tannic evolution without excess. The finish is fresh and supple.
