Goedhuis, December 2012
Stunningly open, spiced, wild berry aromas. In the mouth this has a rich succulence and flamboyance one expects from Bonnes Mares, with real breadth. A generous and multi layered wine with an everlasting finish. This is delicious.
Burghound, January 2013,
(from a 1.5 ha parcel that is almost entirely in terres rouges). A beautifully complex and far ranging nose offers up notes of warm earth, spices and a lovely combination of red berry aromas. The attractively textured, concentrated and mouth coating big-bodied flavors brim with dry extract on the powerful, focused and explosively long finish. This beauty is packed with potential though note that it will require at least 12 to 15 years to realize all of it. (92-95)/2023+

Sturdy, I think this could be called. Grating texture. Solid and thick ankled. Very harsh acidity. Drink 2018-2028
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.
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.
