Chateau Bonnet Entre-Deux-Mers Blanc 2009
A fresh, delicate, elegant nose that is very Sauvignon Blanc. After a light aeration, we find notes of lemon, lemon tarts, white flowers (peach tree, orange tree, white rose) with a touch of flint stone. Brilliant pale yellow color with both green and silver highlights. The attack is fresh and it evolves on the palate with richness and a good balance. Very fruity, with notes of passion fruit, grapefruit, lemon, and white fruit with a long finish. Enjoy now until 2013 with fish skewers, salads, and chocolate desserts.
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.
External Reviews for Chateau Bonnet Entre-Deux-Mers Blanc
Vintner and Bordeaux ambassador for fifty years, Andre Lurton has never produced a wine that didn’t express the unique terrior of Bordeaux along with best modern wine making techniques. Lurton’s Chateau Bonnet is located in the Entre-Deux-Mers region between the Bordeaux rivers. The soil is clay and limestone that’s ideal for the white varietals of Bordeaux. The blend is 50% Sauvignon Blanc, 40% Semillon and 10% Muscadelle, all for vines averaging 19 years old. The wine is fermented slowly and then matures for four months in tank on the lees. This gives the wine a rich texture and a fine complexity. A perpetual "Best Buy' this Bonnet Blanc from the outstanding 2009 vintage, has lively acidity and distinct grapefruit and citrus notes. It’s a wine that rivals whites selling for twice the price.
