White Wine : (Sauvignon and Semillon)

Château Bonnet, Bordeaux Entre-Deux-Mers 2012

This white wine is fresh, to balance the gra, it takes a certain alcoholic strength, in the mouth a magnificent scale an ex aromatic extravagances.

Château Bonnet produces a deliciously reliable, good value wine every years.  “Entre-Deux-Mers” that is particularly good for white wine. This brand-new 2012 shows some lively yellow fruits as well as a strong citrus element. It is vibrantly fresh, showing pure fruit, and is ready to drink now, but will age for a year.
