Get Set For The Next Twitter Tasting - Wine n°1 Château Bonnet Réserve, Bordeaux AOC

Get Set For The Next Twitter Tasting - Wine n°1 Château Bonnet Réserve, Bordeaux AOC | Planet Bordeaux - The Heart & Soul of Bordeaux | Scoop.it

Château Bonnet Réserve will be the first wine of our next Twitter tasting, which will take place on Friday, November 16th. This time, we’ll be tasting six red wines, one Bordeaux AOC and five Bordeaux Supérieurs.

 

Château Bonnet Réserve is a Bordeaux AOC produced by the legendary André Lurton. Retailing in the States for about $12, it’s 50% Merlot and 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, and was awarded a Bronze Medal at the 2012 Los Angeles International Wine Competition.

 

Great for pairing with poultry as well as red meat, as recommended in the March 2012 edition of Family Circle Magazine (see below):

The article mentions the 2007 Château Bonnet, but we’ll be tasting the 2009, which is more structured and voluptuous, with velvety red fruit and a touch of fresh mint.

Stay tuned for more info on the other wines, and see you on November 16th!

From Ted Scheffler at cityweekly.net:

A good inexpensive Bordeaux from the Bordeaux appellation I’ve been enjoying is 2010 Château Blouin ($10.75). This is a solid, entry-level Bordeaux, made by a family-owned Right Bank Bordeaux producer: a medium-bodied Merlot/Cabernet Franc blend, but with lots of depth for $11, soft and smooth and showing dark cherry notes. This could easily become my house Bordeaux for the year.

 

From the importer, P.R. Grisley Co:

Good news Utah, we’ve recently added some great new wines, all of which are easy on the wallet, as well as the palate! All the wines are available at the Wine Store on 280 West, Harris Ave. (1605 South) in Salt Lake, with more stores adding the wines to their inventory soon. The first two are both fantastic red wines from Bordeaux- the 2010 Chateau du Juge (#918196 – $11.99 Retail), which shows wonderful red fruits, cassis, and is well balanced with velvety tannins.

 

The second, the Chateau Blouin (#918197 – $10.65), which definitely over delivers for the price- fresh red fruit, soft tannins, and a more “modern” approach to Bordelais winemaking- this is a perfect everyday wine!
