Château La Croix Bonnelle is created with a blend of Merlot and Cabernet Franc from vineyards growing in the clay and flint soils of Saint-Émilion. Produced by the oenologist Olivier Sulzer, well-known for his elegant and affordable wines, the result is a barely evolved wine, with an intense red colour and wonderful bouquet.
La Croix Bonnelle is a complex and warm wine with a delicate and varied range of aromas: undergrowth, humus, animal notes, spices and vanilla. It is a powerful and elegant wine with a strong personality and mature toasted tannins. Although it can be enjoyed immediately, the 2015 vintage will delight even the most demanding palates after ageing for a few more years.

Chateau La Croix Bonnelle Saint-Emillion 2016
As most wine aficionados know many rated wines disappoint, this one did not. It had a great aroma, when uncorked, taste was full bodied , and lasting,. Only bought 2 bottles, will likely try again, but we are keeping the 2nd bottle for the next special occasion
Changes beautifully as you drink . A touch of class at the right price .
Very good wine
Very good wine! Great representative of Saint Emilion. Notable red fruit and black fruits like red plums and black plums. Some like earthy character with oak. Medium plus acidity, medium plus tannins (had to decant it). Very enjoyable with roasted dished.
