Tasting Note:

A very serious Bonnes-Mares indeed. Compact but not blocky, because this has great energy and drive that helps extend the finish. Structured but suave, noble tannins wrap comfortably around sweet dark brambly fruit whilst undergrowth, moss, and lighter cherry and cherry stone notes bring relief, brightness and dimension. Full bodied, deep, yet showing tremendous lift and precision. A mixture of gravitas and style. Apart from one tiny parcel of 0.12 ha 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.
