Bonnes Mares, Domaine Bruno Clair 2015
**Note: from a 1.60 ha parcel on the Morey side where the soil is more white than red**
A discreet application of wood easily allows the liqueur-like dark currant aromas that are liberally cut with earth and spice nuances to be appreciated. Otherwise there is superb richness to the full-bodied, powerful and concentrated broad-shouldered flavors that possess a velvety and mouth coating palate feel, all wrapped in a gorgeously complex and persistent finish. This isn't quite as classy as the Bèze but it brings a number of other attributes to the table. Note well though that this isn't even remotely going to be an early drinker so plenty of patience will be necessary, indeed I would go so far as to say that it would be pointless to even think about opening a bottle before its 15th birthday.
