Domaine-Jacques-Frédéric-Mugnier Bonnes Mares 2011


SKU 1425


The Bonnes Mares appellation sits astride the village communes of Chambolle-Musigny and Morey-Saint-Denis, it therefore presents characteristics intermediate to both appellations. The influence of the Morey terroir gives frankness, firmness and the more earthy character. Then there is the aromatic spectrum of red fruit berries which dominates in Chambolle, blended with more mineral nuances and sometimes hints of forest floor undergrowth.

Wine AdvocateThe 2011 Bonnes-Mares Grand Cru is much more immediate and precocious than the Amoureuses with ebullient blueberry and cassis fruit aligned with fragrant violet and rose petal scents. This boasts a quintessential, intoxicating Bonnes-Mares bouquet. The palate is supple on the entry with a lovely fatness in the mouth. There is a joie-de-vivre and gaiety about this Bonnes-Mares before the finish, which is more tempered and refined. This is a grand cru that keeps you on your toes and is beautifully crafted. Drink 2017+.
