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 2016 Bonnes Mares Grand Cru has a very stern bouquet, quite distant at first, then gradually almost reluctantly unfurling with sea-influenced black fruit, hints of brine and oyster shell in the background. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-boded tannin, foursquare for a Bonnes Mares, eschewing flamboyance for something more noble. This is certainly a more Morey-inspired Bonnes Mares than Chambolle, but nevertheless is a very fine wine of considerable breeding.
