HENRI BONNEAU Chateauneuf-du-Pape "Marie Beurrier" 2018

Wine Region: Rhone Valley - France

Grape: Grenache, Mourvedre, Syrah, Counoise, Vaccarese

Tasting Notes: "Monsieur Bonneau’s Cuvée Marie Beurrier bottling is a decidedly deeper and more powerful wine than his regular Châteauneuf du Pape, and plays the role of La Tâche in the Bonneau cellars to his Réserve des Célestins’ Romanée-Conti (of course within the strapping and powerful idiom of Châteauneuf). To my palate this is the most classic expression of Châteauneuf du Pape magic in the Bonneau cellars." - John Gilman, A View From The Cellar

About the winery
Henri Bonneau is one of the true legends of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, and despite his passing in 2016, the legacy carries on thanks to his historical team who is keeping the same methods. The family has 6 hectares of vineyards split between the best plots of Châteauneuf, including La Crau, the finest terroir delivering the mythical "Cuvée des Célestins". The winemaking has never changed there, and the keyword is time, the wine is aged in oak for 3-4 years… a habit among many others, all of it making Henri Bonneau's wines so unique.
