Tasting Notes

Robert Parker – 93-95

The 2014 Bonnes-Mares Grand Cru, containing 80% whole cluster fruit this year, has a focused, delineated nose, perhaps missing the exuberance that this vineyard can bestow, but it unfurls nicely in the glass revealing touches of woodland and undergrowth (actually quite Musigny-like!). The palate is fresh on the entry with a fine line of acidity, great tension and focus here with a slightly tapered and yet long and tender finish. This is a sophisticated Bonnes Mares that is a little teasing out of barrel, but will grow up into a great, perhaps more ‘serious’ wine. I remember my introduction to Domaine de la Vougeraie well. It was London, a rather salubrious tasting that served as an introduction of this new name to the Burgundy firmament to wine journalists and the odd nerd writing on a new-fangled medium called the Internet. I tasted the wines and whilst the array of premier and grand cru vineyards was impressive, the wines were less so. They were too oaky. As a consequence, they felt a little humdrum, a bit predictable, too earnest and desperate to please. A couple of journalists waxed lyrical, but they left me cold. [Neal Martin, 28/09/2017]

Anticipated maturity: 2019-2040

Vinous – 94

Very good deep, healthy red The most floral of these 2014s, conveying lovely perfumed lift to the aromas of black fruits, spices and honeysuckle Communicates wonderful ripeness and detail without any impression of heaviness or weight Really superb energy here, no doubt partly due to the vinification with 80% whole clusters Most impressive today on the very long, fine-grained finish, where the savory red fruit and blackberry flavors build slowly and linger long This should be long-lived [Stephen Tanzer, 03/01/2017]

Anticipated maturity: 2024-2037
