Chateau Bonnet Blanc 2005
A respect for the typicity of our terroir whilst at the same time always searching for a modernity of style. A respect for the past and the accumulated experience of the region but equally the same respect for our current consumers and their expectations in terms of wine style and quality. We firmly believe in developing technological innovations that allow us to move towards the twin goals of quality and price accessibility.
A great "House Wine." Simple yet a great companion with fish or meat.
Best of show at the Destin wine festival 2009 and I agree. Fruity with a clean crisp finish. Great wine for the money.
I bought this bottle of wine before Christmas when it was on offer at my local supermarket and I paid about four pounds for it.Entre-Deux-Mers is an appellation only applied to dry white wines from that part of the Bordeaux region between the rivers Garone and Dordogne Chateau Bonnet is a large 270 hectare estate [although only 120 hectares are given over to the white grapes] which has been owned,lived in, and run by Andre Lurton's family since the 1890's.He is a very distinguished and succesful large scale winemaker who also owns several other properties in the Bordeaux region producing a total of around 4 million bottles a year.The wine consists of 50% sauvignon blanc,40% semillon and 10% muscadelle.I drank my bottle last night with my supper of baked fish and I have to report that I liked it very much.The label says 'A crisp,clean,fruity dry white' and I have to agree.There is plenty of fruit there and it is a citrusy kind of fruit.I am obviously not the only one who liked this wine because it got a silver medal at the 2006 International Wine Challenge
