This vineyard expresses all the complexity of the "pinot noir". In all years, one finds there an immense finesse in smoothness with deep, full and generous tannins.They have this characteristic for a great wine, to be at the same time wines of very great guard never not presenting signs of austerity in their youth.

Wine AdvocateFrom .41-hectares of vines (planted in 1946 and 1978 that border Clos de Tart on the Morey side that were leased to Fougeray de Beauclair up until 2006,) the 2011 Bonnes-Mares Grand Cru has an exuberant bouquet as one would expect. Precocious dark cherry and plum aromas, almost honeyed and ravishing! The palate is medium-bodied with a sweet, generous entry before unexpected tertiary notes surface on the middle and latter stages. In the end, it is a more masculine Bonnes-Mares compared to its peers, one more structured but very focused and long in the mouth. Drink 2015-2028.
