Divinus de Château Bonnet Red

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.

The 2003 was awarded a star last year, and this special cuvée, Divinus, is even better in 2004. Deep, intense colour, nose as complex as it is powerful, with rich berry, gingerbread and toasty notes overlaying a musky base. After six months in barrel, the fruit is still present, in the ample, smooth body given backbone by silky tannins segueing to a melting finish. A quality Bordeaux ; drink within two years.

La Revue du Vin de France :

Very ripe blackberry and plum nose ; opulent palate with tightly knit tannins, this is an attractive wine which should gain subtlety as it ages.
