Bonnes Mares, Grand Cru, 2018

Tasting Note:

More muscle than the Clos de Beze, but jaw-dropping for its intensity and drive. Statuesque and powerful but toned and not overbearing.
Awe-inspiring flavours of forest berry, cherry, cherry stone, sloe, minerals and blood orange. A wave of flavour that sweeps across and exhilarates the palate. Incredible. One tiny parcel of 0.12 ha 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. One part was planted in 1946 another in 1980. This makes Bruno Clair the only producer with Bonnes Mares vines within the Morey St Denis commune. Bruno describes the wine as being three quarters from red soil based vines and one quarter white limestone marne-based soils, resulting in a wine of great intensity and vigour.
