RATINGS

92Stephen Tanzer

Slightly reduced aromas of cherry, redcurrant, roast coffee, mocha and almond. Large-scaled, dense and sweet but bright and sharply delineated thanks to sound acidity and firm underlying tannic spine.

92-95Burghound.com

...intense with brooding power and superb underlying material to go with tremendous finishing complexity. The length here is simply phenomenal and the intensity of the flavors is almost painful. A great Bonnes Mares.

89-91Robert M. Parker Jr.

Reveals aromas of coffee, mocha cream, and blackberries. Medium-bodied and exhibiting sweet cherry, coffee bean, and fresh herb flavors.

REGION

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.

TYPE

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.
