Description Build A Case!
 
The vineyards of Chateau Bonnet were planted during the 16th century, by the Reynier family, wealthy merchants from Libourne. In a mere 30 years, the landscape around the house was transformed, as vines replaced forest on the surrounding slopes.

Chateau Bonnet lies to the North of the Entre Deux Mers, on the clay chalk slopes of the commune of Grzillac, overlooking the Dordogne valley some 10km south of Saint Emilion. The estate dates back to the 17th century; when Andr Lurton took over in 1956, it comprised 30 hectares of vineyard, which he immediately undertook to renovate and develop.

Today, half Bonnet's production is devoted to a highly popular dry white (AOC Entre Deux Mers), a blend of Sauvignon, Smillon and Muscadelle grapes, carefully vinified to preserve the freshness and bouquet of these varietals.

The other half is composed of classic red varietals Merlots, Cabernet Francs and Cabernet Sauvignons producing noteworthy clarets widely held to be superior to the general run of the appellation.

WINEMAKER'S NOTES: Vibrant strawberry and cherry aromas. Light bodied with zippy acidity and a long finish.
