Tasting Notes:

Château Bonnet White 2010: This blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon and Muscadelle is fresh and lemony with aromas of grapefruit, boxwood and acacia flowers on the nose. Well balanced with a rich body and nice structure, the aromatic persistence is remarkable, and the notes of citrus fruits and yellow peaches linger on the palate.

Château Bonnet Rosé 2010 ($12.99): A rosé of Merlot and Cabernet, this rose is delightfully eye-catching with bright pink highlights. On the nose, it is intense with a distinctively broad palate of fruit aromas (think strawberry and raspberry). Very clean on the palate with smooth raspberry and cassis flavors. Generous and youthful, lively and dynamic, this rosé lingers to a lovely finish. Heat up the grill and serve with BBQ pork.

Château Bonnet Rouge 2008: A deep, bright garnet color. The nose is very youthful, revealing oak aging through its spicy vanilla aromas, but also presenting delicate hints of ripe fruit which will grow stronger over time. The palate is very generous, an indication of the quality of this vintage in Bordeaux. Along with licorice tones, they bring elegance and complexity to this fine wine, whose finish is long and persistent. Our winemaker suggests this wine is perfect with red meats – barbecued, broiled or in sauce.
