Château Haut Bonneau
80% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc
Picture a small vineyard nestling in the heart of the Bordeaux region hills of Montagne Saint-Emilion, the world’s leading area for producing fine wines. Imagine a special place where the Château Haut Bonneau can be found, with its 22 “parcels” of land, each having been carefully selected over decades and planted with the best examples of merlot, cabernet franc and cabernet sauvignon vines. A vineyard of vines with an average age of 45 years, but the story does not stop there.
Chateau Haut Bonneau is a blend of two grape varieties: merlot and cabernet franc. After fermentation, those wines from older “parcels”, are brought together for a traditional breeding of Bordeaux. The progress of our wines is tasted each month by the family, our consultant oenologist (wine expert) (Miss Cecile MESURE) so as to respect the fruit of our labour – the wine. On average, the process takes 12 months.
