International Wine Cellar | Rating: 96Good bright, deep red. Black cherry, red berries, mocha, minerals and menthol on the nose. Fat, sweet and rich; at once extremely primary and utterly seamless in the mid-palate, with a sappy crushed black cherry flavor dominating. Finishes with substantial ripe tannins and terrific chewy persistence.Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: January/February 2012
Wine Advocate | Rating: 97I tasted both barrels of the 2010 Bonnes-Mares. The first, from a parcel on the Morey border, reveals a cool, mineral-infused expression of fruit. The second, from a parcel in the heart of the vineyard, is pure Chambolle in its sexiness and silkiness. The blend is much more interesting and complete than the two separate wines. Sweet floral notes, menthol and spices are woven together on the effortless, gracious finishAuthor: Antonio Galloni
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.
