Château Bonalgue

Originally built by one of Napoleon’s officers on his return from the Egyptian campaign over 200 years ago this property covers 7 hectares with an ideal exposure.
Bonalgue suffered from a degree of loss due to April Frosts, and also mild hydric stress in the heatwave. The nose is incredibly jammy and ripe, with a real warmth and sweetness of fruit. The palate opens in the same way, then reveals a layer of mocha, cherry jam and coffee – with powerfully deep and forceful tannins that constrain the fruit and give a brooding sense of power and weight. The finish is long, satisfying and powerful, with sweet oak evident and a lovely elegance as the acidity kicks in.
A perfect partner for roast rack of lamb served pink.
Yields of 33hl/ha.Fermentation carried out plot by plot, in small stainless and cement vats with manual pumping over and punching of the caps. The malolactic fermentation took place in barrel. Aged for 18 months in fine-grained French oak barrels (40% new)
