A much more restrained nose speaks of softly spicy black cherry liqueur, anise, wood and violet scents. The highly seductive and gorgeously textured broad-shouldered flavors are notably better concentrated while coating the palate with dry extract that also serves to buffer the firm but not hard tannins that support the hugely long finish. What I find interesting about this wine is that notwithstanding the prominent tannins that should allow it to age for 15 to 20 years with no problem the abundant extract is such that it should also be agreeable after only 7 to 8 years of bottle age. Don't miss! Drink 2029+
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.
