    Chateau Tour St. Bonnet, Medoc, Bordeaux, France
    It is in 1519, that we see for the first time appearing in the texts the mention of the Seigniory of Saint-Bonnet. The size of land greatly increased in 1624 with purchase of many plots. Then, Saint-Bonnet belonged to the Desaigues families of Maignol, Guitard, Caravanne, and Leboeuf. In 1903 Etienne André Lafon repurchased the land. It is Etienne André Lafon's small daughter and her husband, Madam & Mr Merlet-Lafon that have helped direct the Castle Saint-Bonnet into what it is today. They always profit from this admirable soil, on the best gravelly croups of the commune. Composed with majority of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, to which are added a note of Small Verdots and Côt, they are old 20 to 40 years. Worked manually and traditionally, they produce an excellent wine, end and bouqueté, considered rightly, like one of the best "Middle-class men of the Medoc".

    One of the most—if not the most—famous red wine regions of the world, the Medoc reaches northwest from the city of Bordeaux along the left bank of the Gironde River. Its vineyards climb along a band of flatlands, sandwiched between the coastal marshes and the pine forests running along it to the southwest. The entire region can only claim to be three to eight miles wide (at its widest), but it is about 50 miles long.

    While the Medoc encompasses the Haut Medoc, and thus most of the classed-growth villages (Margaux, Moulis, Listrac, St-Julien, Pauillac and St. Estephe) it is really only those wines produced in the Bas-Medoc that use the Medoc appellation name. The ones farther down the river, and on marginally higher ground, are eligible to claim the Haut Medoc appellation, or their village or cru status.

    While the region can’t boast a particularly dramatic landscape, impressive chateaux disperse themselves among the magically well-drained gravel soils that define the area. This optimal soil draining capacity is completely necessary and ideal in the Medoc's damp, maritime climate. These gravels also serve well to store heat in cooler years.

    With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to create complex wines with many different layers of flavors and aromas, or to create more balanced wines. For example, a variety that is soft and full-bodied may be combined with one that is lighter with naturally high acidity. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
