Bonnes Mares Grand Cru

Bonnes Mares Grand Cru bottle

The Bonnes-Mares appellation sits on the border between Morey-Saint-Denis and Chambolle-Musigny. Our vineyard is east-facing and located in an old quarry in Chambolle-Musigny. Les Bonnes Mares has never been a monopole, simply a jointly-held climat. Until the French Revolution, the owners were mostly religious communities, nobility and bourgeois families.

Bright medium red. Sexy, almost exotic sweetness to the aromas of cherry, raspberry, wild herbs and stone. Wonderfully ripe but dry, conveying a rare combination of outstanding volume and great finesse without any impression of dryness--or easy sweetness, for that matter. A classic uncompromising young Bonnes-Mares but without the hardness of old-style wines from this long-aging grand cru. The spicy finish rises inexorably. As youthful as this is, its remarkably fine-grained texture gives it an easy digestibility. This protected site really seals in the heat, said Vincent, who brought in this fruit at close to 13% potential alcohol and did not chaptalize.
