Bonnes Mares, Domaine Dujac 2016
The cool essence of red pinot fruit is cut with plenty of earth along with background notes of violet, lavender and tea. The palate impression of the big-bodied flavors is more powerful still if less refined and I very much like the focus on the hugely long but very firmly structured finish. The Bonnes Mares chez Dujac virtually always ages exceptionally well and the 2016 version will be no exception. Drink: 2033+

The 2016 Bonnes Mares Grand Cru has a tightly wound bouquet, perhaps missing a little delineation at the moment, a little loamy in style at first. Then with rigorous swirling of the glass, it gets its act together and provides the voluptuousness that signposts a great Bonnes Mares. The palate is medium-bodied with a ripe and generous entry countered by a fine line of acidity. It feels slightly confit in style with a satisfying and long finish that fans out, as if this Bonnes Mares finally slips into fifth gear. Gorgeous. 2022 - 2050
