Les Vins Bonhomme 2012 El Petit Bonhomme Tinto (Jumilla DO) Spain
Availability: BCLDB stores and private wine shops like Everything Wine
Production: 5000 cases
Date Tasted: February 15th, 2014
Tasting Notes: A co-production by Spain's renowned Juan Gil family and Canadian-born winemaker Natalie Bonhomme, El Petit Bonhomme is a well-made, easy-drinking, North American-palate friendly blend of 55% Monastrell, 30% Garnacha and 15% Syrah sourced from mature vineyards in the Jumilla region of Spain. Fruity on the nose with aromas of cherry and blackcurrant supported by savoury notes like pipe tobacco, menthol, anise, oak and spices. The palate offers similar flavours and rounded tannins and tangy, citrus acidity. Would pair beautifully with grilled, sweet'n'spicy ham dishes. Enjoy this wine in its youth. Drink now-2016.
