Tasting Notes

    Goedhuis, January 2011

    Though a bit reticent on the nose, the 2009 Bonnes Mares carries forth a plump palate of sweet red and black cherries and damson plums. Spicy new oak tries to take centre stage, yet its beautiful core of juicy fruit never lets go of the reins and leads it to a lifted, bright finish.

    Tasted out of barrel at the Domaine. A little muted at first, the Bonnes-Mares suddenly wakes up in the glass and offers a taut, mineral rich bouquet with great definition. The palate is supple on the entry, a slight gourmand note on the back palate, building nicely with a slight savoury, sinewy finish with a digestif aftertaste.

  • BURG

    Score: 91-93

    This is also quite restrained, indeed almost shy with a muted nose of dark berry fruit and earth that gives way to extremely fresh, supple and surprisingly forward flavors that almost instantly tighten up into a backwards and very firm and austere finish. This is a classically styled andproportioned Bonnes Mares that will require at least 15 years of cellar time.

    Score: 17.5

    Particularly blue tinge. Broad, sumptuous and already appealing on the nose – in stark contrast to wines from this producer tasted earlier. Still quite firm and chestnutty on the palate. This should develop into something really quite special – eventually.

Producer

Domaine Drouhin Laroze

This substantial Gevrey Chambertin domaine is under the guardianship of a collaborative family team: Philippe Drouhin is ably assisted by son and daughter Nicolas and Caroline. First established in 1850, the domaine has major holdings in Gevrey Chambertin, as well as an impressive array of the Côte de Nuits’s grands crus, stretching from Gevrey down through Chambolle Musginy and into Vougeot. Recent investment at the domaine’s barrel hall will continue to drive quality at Drouhin Laroze. Their style falls somewhere between a modernist and a traditionalist. The wines are ripe, concentrated, and often earthy and textured. They offer terrific value, particularly in Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru.

Region

Bonnes Mares

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.
