Bonnet was this family's winery in 1744. André Lurton took over in 1953 and in 2015, the third warmest year since 1900, his team created a wine with tropical fruits, mango and pineapple. This give this wine its ripe, perfumed character. It does have a crisp side as well, fresh with apple and citrus. The balance is just right, giving a refreshing, ready-to-drink wine.
