Thanks to expressive fruit – but without excessive concentration – Château Bonnet's red wine is unquestionably charming. In fact, it is a benchmark in Bordeaux. The wine is best enjoyed on the young side, although the quality tannin ensures good ageing for several year. With its fresh red cherry notes, this wine makes a great pairing for grilled meats and cheese platters.
Deep ruby-red color scattered with purple highlights.
The nose is very attractive and fruity, revealing a delicious array of fresh fruit notes (cherry), underpinned by subtle hints of spice.
This beautiful Bonnet starts out straightforward on the palate, becoming very round, delicious and sweet. Fresh red fruit aromas (cherry) follow through to the palate.

Nuanced and developed wines go well with rustic meat dishes. You can also pair them with cheese or enjoy them on their own.
Try with reindeer steak, entrecôte or hard, aged cheeses, such as Gouda, Parmesan or Manchego.
