Divinus de Château Bonnet Red

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

Divinus is Château Bonnet's prestige cuvée. Our winemaking team has taken the greatest of care every step of the way to produce a wine on a par with the great growths. Made from perfectly ripe grapes, this cuvée displays softer fruit, more body and more pronounced oak when young than the Château Bonnet Réserve.


Chateau : Château Bonnet
label of 2019 Divinus de Château Bonnet red
Appellation : Bordeaux

Wine style

Rich and Powerful

Grape blend

Cabernet Sauvignon 60% / Merlot 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

Deep and dense colour, very dark red, almost black, with ruby highlights.

Nose

The nose is very expressive, with notes of toast, coffee, but also ripe black fruits (blueberries, blackberries, black cherries...), with some vanilla touches.

Mouth

The attack is full and fleshy. The tannins are coated. The mouth is well balanced, with sweetness and freshness. The black fruit notes (blackberry, blueberry, blackcurrant), already perceived on the nose, dominate here. Good length. Rich finish. Its tannic structure gives it good ageing potential. It should be kept for one or two years to fully appreciate its qualities, and can then be enjoyed with meat or poultry terrines, kebabs and grilled meats, as well as pasta in Italian sauce.

Consumption period
