WINE CLUB SELECTION

Founded by Canadian-born Nathalie Bonhomme, Les Vins Bonhomme is a small artisanal bodega in the Valencia region of Spain. After leaving home at the age of twenty and moving to the UK for a spell, Nathalie’s love of wine was sparked. Her passion for wine was further intensified while spending the subsequent two years in Cape Town, South Africa, and by her eventual move to Costa Blanca in Spain at the age of 25. Always wanting to produce her own wine and having learned a great deal about Spanish wine from the various producers she met, Nathalie banded together with some friends to create her eponymous wine label in 2007.

In addition to spearheading production at Les Vins Bonhomme, Nathalie also collaborated as the international export manager of the famed Dominio de Pingus in Castilla y León, and in 2020 joined forces with her husband, André Tremblay, at their boutique winery in the Rhône Valley (Le Domaine du Tix). Today, Nathalie and splits her time between Altea in Spain, Mormoiron in France and Quebec, Canada—a truly international winemaker, if ever there was one!

This delicious red is a blend made from of 55% old-vine Monastrell (AKA Mourvèdre), 30% Garnacha and 15% Syrah from head-trained (bush) vines. The grapes were hand-harvested and given a pre-fermentation cold maceration, followed by a temperature-controlled fermentation for 2 weeks in small stainless-steel vats. The resulting wine underwent malolactic fermentation in 225L French oak barrels (Monastrell and Syrah), and in 300L American oak (Garnacha), for a total of is 6 months in oak.

Rich aromatics of dark fruit and garrigue. The palate bursts with loads of red and black fruit and a touch of spice. This wine shows great structure and really over-delivers for the price. The long, layered finish comes to a charming close with fine-grained tannins.
