Brilliant 2007 Bonnezeaux: Les Melleresses, Château la Varière
Golden label ... golden wine
Decided that we could do with a warming apéro this evening (yes I know Bob that the UK is still hot compared to Alberta but all things are relatives), so selected the single vineyard 2007 Les Melleresses, Bonnezeaux from Jacques and Anne Beaujeau's Château la Varière (37.5cl) . It underlines what a great sweet wine vintage 2007 is because it has such a thrilling balance of opulent fruit – very ripe peach and apricot and and zinging, mineral acidity. This is really a wine to sip on its won either before a meal or after. Worth considering serving it instead of a dessert.
