Louis Jadot Bonnes Mares 2009
|Appellation||Cote de Nuits|
BurghoundHere the nose resembles quite closely that of the Fuées though the flavor profile is bigger, richer and bolder evidencing obvious muscle and power and culminating in a very firm, intense, explosive and driving finish that delivers outstanding length. This is a big wine with dense and mouth coating tannins that will require at least 15 years to fully resolve and 20 would not surprise me. 92-94
Wine AdvocateThe 2009 Bonnes Mares, from predominantly terres blanches on the Chambolle side, emerges from the glass with perfumed, seamless fruit. All of the elements are woven together beautifully in this silky, refined Bonnes Mares. An eternal finish rounds out this impeccable, impossibly beautiful wine. This is an especially delicate Bonnes Mares. Anticipated maturity: 2019-2034.
Wine SpectatorAn opulent, powerful red, permeated with cherry, strawberry and mineral flavors, all supported by dense tannins. It's the tannins that leave an impression on the finish, but not in a drying sense. An element of sweet fruit remains. Monolithic now. Best from 2016 through 2035. 80 cases imported.
