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 AdvocateThe 2014 Bonnes Mares Grand Cru has a tightly wound, stony and rather stoic bouquet at first, one that demands patience. This is not as immediate as its peers. Eventually there are subtle rose petal notes, orange zest and cold granite aromas that unfurl, giving a fleeting glimpse -- a premonition of what is to come. The palate is medium-bodied with saturated tannin, touches of orange rind infusing the blackberry and blueberry fruit, controlled and quite structured towards the finish that has great nervosité. Alongside the Clos Saint-Jacques this is Bruno Clair's best 2014.
