Château Tour Saint Bonnet itself is located in the commune of St-Christoly in the northern Medoc. Located next to the Gironde on a gravel ridge, the 40 hectares of vineyards are planted with 45% Merlot, 45% Cabernets Sauvignon and Franc, 5% Petit Verdot and 5% Cot (Malbec). The average age of these vines is 35 year old. The Château has been owned by the Merlet family for four generations.
Winemaker Jacques Merlet opts for fermentation in concrete vats rather than small oak barrels and then ages the wine in large oak foudres (large wooden oak cask) for 18 months. This means oak influence is much more subtle and elegant and more of the pure fruit character is retained.
Merlot 65%, Cabernet Sauvignon 30% and Petit Verdot 5%.
Chateau Tour St Bonnet is a full-bodied and rich Bordeaux with elegant, cassis fruit and a smooth finish.
