Estate: Chateau de Bon Ami is a property of Nicolas Wine, a wine shop and one of the largest negociants in France. It was founded in 1822 with the opening of 3 wine shops in Paris, changing the way people were able to access wine by offering already bottled wines for purchase, rather then bringing jugs to the local winemaker to be filled. Today Nicolas Wine is owned by Castel Freres, and in addition to having over 400 stores throughout Europe, they also own 14 Chateaux in Bordeaux and are “the largest owner of wine in the Medoc region”.
Winemaking: Grapes were sourced from vineyards located in the northeastern part of the Bordeaux region. Nicolas Wines are committed to producing high quality wines and protecting he environment for future generations. All of their wineries preserve natural resources, protect biodiversity and limit the use of chemical fertilizers.
Tasting Notes: Garnet in colour with hazy, soft aromas of chocolate, forest floor and peppery spice. Straightforward with pleasantly muddled dark fruit flavours surpassed by earthy forest elements and peppery spice. Finishing with chocolate hints and more spice. Rustic and spicy, a fun sip to pair with Saturday afternoon snacks.
