Tasting Notes

A complex, pure and beautifully layered extract of red berry fruit, particularly raspberry nose mixes with notes of stone, earth and a hint of the sauvage. The rich and equally pure tautly muscular flavors exude a fine minerality and I especially like the sense of underlying tension as it imparts energy to the balanced, focused and strikingly long finish. When viewed through the lens of a typical Bonnes Mares, this comes across as a refined effort, which is undoubtedly because of the very fine grain of the supporting tannins.

From the Chambolle Musigny side. Dark ruby. Solid and intriguing but nervy nose, So much cherry fruit! Explosive! Like fruit compote! Rich and complete and already gorgeous. Pure pleasure! Reverberant. The flavours of a Germanic breakfast somehow - smoked meat? And dark fruit flavours. Great precision.
