International Wine Cellar | Rating: 93($225) Good bright, full red. Highly nuanced nose combines briary raspberry and strawberry, mocha, brown spices, minerals and underbrush. Sweet on entry, then quite tight in the middle and dominated by its structure in the early going. But aeration brings a strong impression of dusty extract and terroir-accurate notes of red berries, menthol, licorice and underbrush. Finishes long and subtle, with a lovely light touch and a piquant suggestion of rhubarb. This will require a good seven or eight years of cellaring to express itself.Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: March/April 2010
Jancis Robinson | Rating: 18The Bonnes Mares vineyard lies at the edge of Chambolle-Musigny, and occupies 15ha of which almost four spill into Morey-St-Denis. In this area, the calcium content of the soil, which gives the wines of Chambolle- Musigny their great delicacy, is less pronounced, and compared to Le Musigny, Bonnes-Mares is more robust, yet still extremely elegant. Domaine Louis Jadot controls 1.6ha, which include the entire Morey-Saint-Denis parcel, in the Bonnes-Mares climat, of which 0.6ha were acquired with the majority of the Domaine Clair Da holdings in 1985, with 1 hectare under long-term contract.Lots of sweet and fragrant fruit with good depth and weight on the palate, particularly in this vintage. Juicy energy and very good length. (JH)Author: Julia Harding MW
