Tasting Notes

**Note: 100% from the Chambolle side**
A beautifully well-layered and ripe nose of cassis, spice, earth and sauvage-tinged aromas are also trimmed in just enough wood to notice. Like all of the best wines in the Jadot 2012 portfolio this is impressively concentrated with plenty of palate soaking dry extract on the muscular broad-shouldered flavors that are shaped by a very firm tannic spine and superb finishing length and power. This is a classic Bonnes Mares that will require a long snooze in a cold cellar before it's fully ready for prime time drinking.

Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (54), April 2014

Jadot's 2012 Bonnes Mares is shaping up to be a modern-day classic. Firm tannins underpin a core of blue/black fruit, smoke, tobacco, licorice, cloves and violets, all supported by massive, imposing tannins. Totally alive and pulsating in the glass, the 2012 boasts superb depth and intensity from the very first taste. Savory herbs, licorice and new leather all add complexity over time. This towering, statuesque Burgundy is going to need serious time to come together.
