More Vintages and Sizes of Vogue - Bonnes Mares:

(from a 2.7 ha parcel situated entirely in terres rouges soil in the south west portion of the vineyard) A surprisingly expressive nose displays a broad panoply of ripe floral and fruit aromas that include red raspberry, cherry, plum, violet and rose surrounded by warm soil tones that can also be found on the powerful and tautly muscled large scaled flavors blessed with ample underlying reserves of dry extract that render the relatively refined tannins invisible at present on the explosive and exceptionally deep finish where notes of citrus and floral resurface. A seriously impressive wine of Zen-like harmony and poise.

($360-$540) Very good bright red. Complex but youthfully restrained nose hints at dark raspberry, mocha, herbs and smoke. Quite suave for young Bonnes-Mares, with a slightly medicinal quality to the candied fruit and spice flavors. This has the firm acidity of hard candy and seems more red fruit than usual for this cuvee The tannins arrive late, allowing the finish to expand and linger. This is a lovely example of its vintage.

From their south-east-facing, red clay vines on the Chambolle side of Bonnes Mares.Bright crimson - very pure and healthy-looking and smelling. Great purity. Complete, ripe and healthy nose. Heady with masses of ripe but savoury (as opposed to sweet) fruit that really drives this wine across the palate. Racy, silky, with mass and depth. Super clean and bracing. Very fine with great pace and energy. Clean but not powerful finish, reverberates but all fruit rather than mineral notes.

De Vogue's 2007 Bonnes Mares calls to mind sweet-tart black raspberry candies and herbal lozenges, along with notes of brown spices and smoky black tea. Rich, sedate, and provocatively sweet and perfumed, this manages simultaneously to preserve a saline savor and suggestion of lobster shell reduction that precludes anyone calling it a 'fruit bomb.â?� The smoky and ' for lack of a better covering term ' 'mineralâ?� elements accompany this Bonnes Mares' soothing finish all the way to its distant end. No doubt there is at least a decade's worth of seduction and intrigue on hand, but here too, I would not hesitate to relish them significantly sooner.
