Bonnet is a real benchmark for standard "Bordeaux"-class red wine, which is nothing to brag about as such, but it's certainly a decent drink if you like the style (as I do). This is an honest, (prototypical even) French red wine that will cut through the richest of meats and cheeses on a budget. Tight nose on opening, classic, if reserved, aromas of dark berries, anise and pencil shavings with some swirling. Medium bodied, very dry, with an austere, lean fruitiness and plenty of tannin. Old school French style all the way. A good Wednesday night Bordeaux.
