Domaine-Jacques-Frédéric-Mugnier Bonnes Mares 2015


We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

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. Bonnes Mares can accompany more "powerful" dishes than other Chambolle wines, such as meats cooked in sauce or game …This wine will require a minimum of 5 to10 years ageing.

Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Bonnes-Mares Grand Cru was quite open and expressive on the nose, perhaps not as concentrated as the Chambolle les Amoureuses, but with pretty floral accents developing as it opens. Maybe compared to a dozen other 2015 Bonnes-Mares that I tasted from barrel, it is missing the pizzazz, the opulence that defines this vineyard. The palate is medium-bodied with an energetic, orange rind-tinged opening, quite structured in the mouth with a classic-styled finish that is much more reticent than I would have anticipated. To be honest, I often find Bonnes-Mares outflanked by Mugnier's two premier crus and that is no different in this vintage.
