Tasting Notes


Bonnes Mares

Grand Cru Red barrel

Note: from a 1.5 ha parcel that is roughly divided in .90 ha of terres rouges and .60 ha of terres blanches, the latter of which has the slightly older vines; in 2011 the blend is 55% terres blanches and 45% terres rouges

This is also brilliantly perfumed if not quite as elegant as the Amoureuses with its broad ranging nose of earth, red currant and lovely floral notes. There is a firm minerality to the remarkably rich, powerful and concentrated big-bodied flavors that possess both excellent volume and first-rate punch on the hugely long and youthfully austere. This is a stunner of wine that will need pretty much all of 15 years, and perhaps even 20, to arrive at its full majority. Drink 2026+
