From the bottle:
"André Lurton's family has presided over the prime vineyards of Château Bonnet for over a hundred years. Harnessing this heritage and tradition, and adopting modern winemaking techniques, André has crafted this refreshing, fragrant rosé from the classic Bordeaux varieties. Cabernet Sauvignon (50%) and Merlot (50%). Serve lightly chilled.
The 2010 Château Bonnet Bordeaux Rosé begins with deep aromas of strawberry, raspberry plus some earthiness and a little bit of tomato plant. The taste is fresh, clean, smooth and refreshing. The Château Bonnet features cherry, strawberry and raspberry but the fruit doesn't overwhelm. The wine could use a little more structure but it does have a kind of liveliness to it. Quite drinkable.
