Chateau Bonnange (Blaye)

Wow. Such flesh and suppleness. This is classy Bordeaux, made with enormous care and attention to detail. Great to taste before you see the prices. If you had told us this was a £50+ Pomerol, we would not have been surprised. Should be less than half that on our shelves soon.
It was the result of an unexpected meeting crammed into a busy morning. We had a rendezvous with Pascal Montaut of Chateau Les Jonqueyres at the tail end of 2021. “I have some news” he said. “I retired and have sold the Chateau. Come with me, I’ll introduce you to the new owners.”
