This 2006 is a good crisp, minerally sauvignon blanc. Lots of citrus and pear flavors, no oak. Terrific house white. Goes well with seafood and grilled chicken.
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
External Reviews for Chateau Bonnet Blanc
This is always fresh and clean. Light green apple and celery character. Medium- to light-bodied, with fresh acidity and a crisp finish. Drink now.
The vast 300-acre estate of Château Bonnet in the heart of the Entre-deux-Mers produces a deliciously reliable, good value wine every year. This brand-new 2008 shows some lively yellow fruits as well as a strong citrus element. It has vibrantly fresh, pure fruit and is ready to drink now, but can age for a year. Screwcap.
A very fresh and grassy white, with lime zest and kiwifruit hanging on the finish. Drink now.
A crisp, clean, fruity wine, tangy and lemony. This is a really attractive wine, a classic of its kind. Screwcap.
A very fresh white, with loads of sliced apple, lime and grassy character. Medium-bodied, with good acidity and a long, lively finish. Drink now.
One of the most familiar Entre-deux-Mers chateaus, and certainly the largest, this is the home of master vigneron André Lurton. With its fresh, grapefruit flavors and aromas of white flowers and hedgerows, this is a great summer wine.
Aromas of white peach, lime and lemon lead to a medium body, with bright acidity and a long, fresh finish. A solid value in white Bordeaux.
