International Wine Cellar | Rating: 93($140) Good deep medium red. Complex aromas of black cherry, spices, underbrush, fresh herbs and rose petal. Sweet, dense, concentrated and vibrant, with an impressively lush texture for the vintage. With its energy, grip and richness, this wine seems every bit as good as the excellent 2002 version.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 88A smooth, bright red, stylish and accessible for its lively cherry and spice flavors, though not that multidimensional. It has clarity and a lingering finish. 200 cases made.Author: Bruce Sanderson
Rating: 90Pretty red pinot fruit aromas combine with intense blueberry notes and flavors that are somewhat lighter than the Clos de Vougeot yet retain the classic linearity and robust structure of young Bonnes Mares. This finishes with outstanding persistence and impressive balance but not the sheer depth of material of the Clos de Vougeot. Still, this is an elegant and harmonious wine with impressive persistence.Issue: 1st Quarter, 2004

Burgundy is home to some of the greatest and most expensive wines in the world. Stretching from Auxerre in the north to Lyon in the south, the region's most famous section is the limestone-rich Côte d'Or. Vineyards in Burgundy are classified according to their locations on the hillsides. Only 2% of total production is from grand cru sites, while premier cru and village-level wines are more common. It is rare for one domaine to own an entire vineyard; rather the land has been divided down to individual rows, in some cases as a result of inheritance laws. While other varieties can be found in Burgundy, and reign supreme. The best examples are capable of aging for 15 years or more, a rarity for these two varieties, making them highly valuable.
