En Primeur Château Bonalgue will be available for delivery or storage once it lands in the UK, usually two years following the en primeur offer.
From the house of Jean-Baptiste Audy, who settled in Libourne in 1906 and began a wine trading company along the banks of the Dordogne River on the celebrated Quai du Priourat.
The Bourotte family bought the Château Bonalgue property in 1926, and through the generations, the process of finessing the final product has continued with the recent addition of a new vatting room and second barrel cellar.
Merlot can be at it’s most expressive in Pomerol, with velvet tannins and rich aromas. The Bonalgue vineyards are planted with 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc.
The soil is comprised of gravel and sand-clay with subsoils composed of gravel and alios, this is typical of Pomerol: a warm and early terroir which gives the grapes an exceptional ripeness.
After assemblage the wine is aged for 18 months in oak, 50% of which is new.
En Primeur pricing is per case as specified and excludes UK duty and VAT, which will be charged at the prevailing rate when the wine is released from bond for delivery. Bonded storage is available. Onward delivery or transfer is not included and can be quoted for on request. Free delivery on orders over £100 does not apply to bonded or en primeur wines.
