92Vinous / IWC

Somewhat reticent nose shows an almost roasted ripeness, with hints of black fruits, mocha and sandalwood. Big, broad and sweet; has real grand cru density and richness. Finishes with rich, sweet tannins

91-93The Wine Advocate

Medium to full-bodied, intense, and concentrated personality. Black cherries, bacon, and candied raspberries can be found in this chewy-textured, firm, and long-finishing offering. It is fresh, pure, and intense.

Nose of black fruit and earth is followed by moderately concentrated and intense flavors of considerable depth and fine length. The robust tannins this displayed on release have now mellowed


France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Nuits, Chambolle-Musigny, Bonnes Mares

Bonnes Mares is a Grand Cru vineyard that is located in two appellations Chambolle-Musigny and the neighboring Morey St.-Denis. Of the total of 37.6 acres, 33.75 are in Chambolle, and just under 4 acres are in Morey St. Denis. The history of the vineyard is complicated and today there are some 35 landholders. The vineyard lies between 265 and 300 meters. The soil is heavier toward Morey St.-Denis, which is the northern end of the vineyard, and lighter as the vineyard enters the Chambolle-Musigny commune. Principal landholders are De Vogue, 6.7 acres; Drouhin-Laroze, 3.7 acres; and Georges Roumier, 3.5 acres.


Red Wine, Pinot Noir, Grand Cru

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
