Tasting Note:

This is the most accomplished Bonnes-Mares Bruno has made. As is usually the case there is more muscle and obvious structure than in either of the Clos de Bèze or Clos St.-Jacques yet not at the expense of finesse or balance. Bright, racy, crunchy red berry and cherry fruits with notes of mineral, herb and undergrowth overlay the firm foundations. Intense, crispy and gripping. A statuesque vin de garde style of wine that also boasts the most beautiful quality of fruit. Mighty and noble. One tiny parcel of 0.12 hectares is situated on the Chambolle side of the vineyard. The predominant core of this cuvée comes from two parcels in the Morey commune, one of which is next to Clos de Tart, planted on limestone-rich marne blanche soils giving a structued and powerful style of Bonnes-Mares. One part was planted in 1946 another in 1980.
