Château de Bonnezeaux 'Coqueries' 2020Regular price £50.00
Limited availability - max. one bottle per order.
Château de Bonnezeaux is bringing the historic sweet wine vineyards of the Anjou back to life with its spellbinding, dry Chenin Blancs. Gaining a cult-like following, Guyonne Saclier de la Bâtie’s wines have garnered a must-have status almost overnight. Concentrated and richly layered, a result of meticulous late harvesting, they are balanced by Chenin’s hallmark acidity and saline minerality. ‘Frimas’ – an increasingly popular part-négociant cuvée – offers unrivalled finesse and value, but it is the single-parcel wines, ‘La Montagne’, ‘La Minée Haute’, and ‘Coquerie’ that are the apogee of the estate.
From a new plot for the estate, comprising of quartz and schist soils, this shows a ripe and honeyed orchard fruit profile that mingles with crushed rock minerality. Brilliant, shimmering Chenin Blanc. Bottled unfined and unfiltered - some sediment may remain.
