Robert Parker 93-95
The 2014 Bonnes-Mares Grand Cru is the second new addition to the domaine, the same métayage as the Mazi-Chambertin, although I suspect that this will be far superior. It comes from the terre blanches on the Chambolle-Musigny side. It has a more refined and harmonious bouquet than the Mazi-Chambertin, with a touch of mint infusing the red and black fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with superb energy and vigor, fine tannin and a sorbet-like freshness on the finish.This is wonderful.
Anticipated maturity: 2018-2038
(from millerandé vines that yielded just 20 hectoliters per hectare in both 2014 and 2015): Good full red Captivating scents of raspberry, underbrush, smoke and minerals Dense and savory on the palate, with the black raspberry and mineral flavors complicated by earth and brown spices This wine comes from mostly white soil in the middle of the cru Finishes with serious but smooth tannins and a sappy reserve that will require long aging Incidentally, the 2014 Mazis-Chambertin was made by Mortet through a metayage agreement with the same grower as this wine, but production of the Mazis was a more generous 35 hectoliters per hectare in 2014
Anticipated maturity: 2025-2037
