Chateau BONALGUE Pomerol 2011

Region: Pomerol - France

Grapes: Cabernet Franc, Merlot

Tastings Notes: Pleasant red berry nose. Some oak derivation but seems more integrated here. The palate is marked by tannin and highish acidity so typical of the vintage and yet you have fruit and corpulence a medium bodied palate with a medium finish.

About the Winery: Chateau Bonalgue started out life under the name of Clos Bonalgue. That name changed in 1969 to Chateau Bonalgue. The estate has a long history in the Pomerol appellation. The original chateau was constructed in 1815 when it was owned by the Rabion family. The vineyard takes its name from the sector the vines are planted in, Graves de Bonalgue.
