Vintner and Bordeaux ambassador for fifty years, Andre Lurton has never produced a wine that didnít express the unique terrior of Bordeaux along with best modern wine making techniques. Lurtonís Chateau Bonnet is located in the Entre-Deux-Mers region between the Bordeaux rivers. The soil is clay and limestone thatís ideal for the white varietals of Bordeaux. The blend is 50% Sauvignon Blanc, 40% Semillon and 10% Muscadelle, all for vines averaging 20+ years old. The wine is fermented slowly and then matures for four months in tank on the lees. This gives the wine a rich texture and a fine complexity. A perpetual "Best Buy' this Bonnet Blanc from the outstanding 2012 vintage, has lively acidity and distinct grapefruit and citrus notes. Itís a wine that rivals whites selling for twice the price.
