Château du Puy Bonnet

08.05.19

Château du Puy Bonnet is situated on an exceptional terroir of deep, free-draining calcareous soils in the satellite appellation of Montagne St-Emilion on Bordeaux's right bank. Montagne-Saint-émilion only produces red wine, and nearly all of the grape varieties from Bordeaux can be and are used, such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Cot and so on. In practice it is Merlot that is used most often and Château du Puy Bonnet is no exception, with a typical encepagement of 85% Merlot. The vineyard of Montagne can be found northeast of Saint-émilion, on the right bank of the Barbonne. It forms part of the "satellites" of the Saint-émilion vineyard along with the vineyards of Lussac-Saint-émilion, Saint-Georges-Saint-émilion and Puisseguin-Saint-émilion.The base yield is fixed at 45 hl/hectare with a limit of 20%. Before the chaptalization and concentration process, the must (the residue of grapes, after the juice has been extracted) must contain a minimum of 187g/l of natural sugar. After fermentation, the wine must have a minimum alcohol level of 11% vol.
