The wine is pale yellow, tinged with green and silver. The aromas are of lemon and lemon curd, floral, flinty; very typical of Bordeaux Sauvingon Blanc. It’s a fruity wine, tasting of passion fruit, grapefruit, and lemon.
|Intense, vivid, fresh with young, floral notes; ripe grape, citrus, pineapple scents
|2008: 88 Points - Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast: "The vast 300-acre estate of Château Bonnet in the heart of the Entre-deux-Mers produces a deliciously reliable, good value wine every year. This brand-new 2008 shows some lively yellow fruits as well as a strong citrus element. It has vibrantly fresh, pure fruit and is ready to drink now, but can age for a year."
