Chateau Bonnet Red 2009 Bordeaux
Famous Bordeaux vintner, Andre Lurton has guided Chateau Bonnet since the 1950's and in that time he has taken careful measures to improve the property both in the vineyards and in the winery. As a result Chateau Bonnet is world renowned for producing fine quality wines that are excellent values. Lurtonís Chateau Bonnet is located in the Entre-Deux-Mers region between the Bordeaux rivers. The soil is clay and limestone as in most of Bordeaux so the red wine vineyards are 50% Cabernet Sauvignon and 50% Merlot. The grapes are fermented slowly over three weeks time in stainless steel tanks where maximum extraction of flavor and color occurs. Aging in barrel follows and then the wine is lightly fined with egg whites before bottling. From the outstanding 2009 vintage this wine shows true Bordeaux character and distinctly supple tannins. A French wine bargain, Grab it while it's ON SALE!!

            How much thinking is required to buy an under $15 smooth, easy drinking Bordeaux? I say not much! This one smells like a bowl of mixed berries. Let it breathe a bit and the palate will open up to silky smoothness.

                    Don't let the screw cap mislead you. Decanting and a patient hour to breathe makes it well worth the wait. Not bad straight from the bottle (I do use a glass) but the slight initial tannic harshness really mellows into a smooth enjoyable drink.

                      well balanced Bordeaux front to back. Not a long finish but a nice one-that may improve with a bit of age to let the tannins relax-has that Entre Deux Mer taste(taste the sea) without the price-really just a drinkable French table at a great price

                      Please add in the description that the wine has a screw cap. I have been drinking wine for many years and am from the old school where corks rule.
