Bonnes-Mares Grand Cru
Côte de Nuits
AOC Grand cru
One of Burgundy’s 33 Grand Crus, the Bonnes-Mares appellation is divided between the communes of Chambolle-Musigny and Morey-Saint-Denis. An emblematic wine of the Côte de Nuits, the siliceous clay soil overlying white marly limestone gives the Pinot Noir grape unique and exceptional characteristics: power, body and a potential of decades of without losing its finesse and elegance.
On tasting this Bonnes-Mares Grand Cru we can truly appreciate the association of a great terroir and a great varietal: the nose is superb with notes of cooked fruit, forest undergrowth, and acacia honey. The palate is fleshy and full-bodied with silky tannins. Extremely long finish.
Ideal with red meats, big game, and ripe or full-flavoured cheeses.
