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.

Tasting Comment

Appareance

This Divinus is a wonderful, deep cherry-red colour.This Divinus is a wonderful, deep cherry-red colour.

Nose

The nose is very expressive, combining black fruit aromas (blackberry) and oaky and spicy notes, thanks to barrel ageing. A remarkable balance between fruit and oak.

Mouth

Starts out straightforward, becoming wonderfully round mid-palate. Well-structured and concentrated, leading into a lovely long aftertaste, reminiscent of the oaky and black fruit notes perceived on the nose. This wine unveils all its qualities when served with grilled rib steak or pot-roasted guinea fowl.
