(one of the two barrels was new): Good dark red. Perfumed peppery lift and sexy floral tones add interest to the aromas of red raspberry and red cherry. Seamless, savory wine with a slightly medicinal cast to its sappy flavors of red berries and spicy underbrush. Quite youthful, even medicinal, on the back end but the tannins are sweet. Compared to this wine, the 2012 version has higher acidity and more tannins, noted winemaker Weber. Drink 2023-2034
Perched between Morey-St-Denis and Chambolle-Musigny in the heart of the Cotes de Nuits this Grand Cru appellation can balance the best characteristics of both. Bonnes Mares wines combine fragrance and femininity with body and power. A seductive combination indeed.
