Wine Spectator: Henri Bonneau, Dean Of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Dies At 78

March 23, 2016

Henri Bonneau, the iconoclastic vigneron whose wines defined the throwback style of Châteauneuf-du-Pape for a generation, died March 21 due to diabetes complications. He was 78. Bonneau was a singular presence in the town of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Working from his tiny domaine, he nearly single-handedly produced wines with a distinctive force and presence that most vignerons in the appellation considered the paradigm for old-school Grenache. Wine Spectator has more on Bonneau’s life and work.
