Domaine Drouhin-Laroze Bonnes Mares 2005
The Domaine's Grands Crus are matured in oak barrels (80% new barrels) made from wood from the Allier and Nivernais regions. We favour light to medium-plus toasts as this ensures the perfect harmony between the wine and wood tannins. The eye is immediately caught by the vermilion hue. The first nose conveys discrete hints of blackcurrant bud and flowers. Spices and small red fruit aromas appear on the palate on aeration with liquorice contributing character. The sweet flavour of rose provides subtlety and style. The overall harmony ensures depth and results in a dense, superb and peerlessly elegant wine. Serving temperature: 16° to 18°C Matching food: Bonnes Mares is perfect with wildfowl in a vigneronne sauce, beef tournedos sauce forestière or robust cheeses such as Ami du Chambertin and matured goat's cheeses.
