Part of the family-owned Les Vignobles André Lurton, Château Bonnet has been in the Lurton family since 1897. It was inherited by current patriarch Andre Lurton in 1953, who transformed his tiny family estate into the largest chateau in Bordeaux. André Lurton is one of the main figures behind Bordeaux’s quality revolution, and Château Bonnet is the beneficiary of his exacting standards.
Over the past 60 years, André Lurton has simultaneously preserved traditional winemaking techniques while embracing technological advances. In addition, as one of the top three land owners in Bordeaux, he has an exceptional level of control over his fruit. This combination of tradition, modernity, and vineyard ownership means Lurton has the rare ability to offer unique, terroir-driven wines with consistently excellent quality.
