Château Le Bonnat
Situated in the Graves Appellation, Chateau Le Bonnat was originally operated by Chateau Fieuzal. It was not until 1991 that the Lesgourgues family made the acquisition of the property.
The 56 acres of vineyard are planted in the northern part of the Graves appellation, in proximity to the village of Saint Selve and the historical land of Montesquieu at La Brede.
The 30 years old vines in average are planted over a clay-gravel and chalky soil, ideal terroir for a low yield in order to produce the most ideal fruit.
The vineyard is composed of 27 acres of Merlot, 22 acres of Cabernet Sauvignon and a small parcel of Cabernet Franc. 4 acres of Semillon and 2 acres of Sauvignon Blanc are dedicated to a limited production of white wines.
Chateau Le Bonnat’s grapes benefit from the renowned quality of neighboring Chateau Haut Selve cellars and from the outmost care of its associates for the production of this outstanding “cru”.
