The Bonneau family has made wine in Châteauneuf-du-Pape since 1667, the late Henri Bonneau was the 12th generation and a true legend in the world of traditional winemakers. There are six hectares of vineyards planted mainly with Grenache, the remainder with Mourvèdre, Syrah, Counnoise and Vaccarese. The wines include the mythical Réserve des Celestins and Cuvée Marie Beurrier; known for their ripeness of fruit and complexity, achieved in part thanks to late harvesting, gentle extraction and extended barrel ageing. These are wines endowed with a rare texture and subtle style, only found in the world’s finest wines.
