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 delicious, dry white from the classic Bordeaux varieties Sauvignon (50%), Semillon (40%) and Muscadelle (10%). Serve lightly chilled.
The 2010 Château Bonnet Entre-Deux-Mers White begins with aromas of citrus, grapefruit and pear along with some floral notes. Tasting the wine shows lots of citrus (lemon/lime) flavors as well as grapefruit, pear, peaches and a little guava. The Château Bonnet tastes nice and fresh with a great mix of strong flavors. The wine ends with a good finish featuring a nice concentration of flavors that linger for awhile. All this plus good acidity opens up lots of food pairing possibilities but drinking this wine actually makes me crave a Neapolitan pizza! Gets better and better with every sip!
Stay tuned for another review of wine from Château Bonnet tomorrow, the Bordeaux Rosé.
