Description

Renowned and respected as one of the finest producers in Burgundy, Bouchard Père et Fils has truly become an institution, known for the exceptional quality of their wines and the diversity of its many vineyards. Founded in 1731, Bouchard Père et Fils has built up an estate of 130ha and, collectively, is the largest owner of Grand Crus (12ha) and Premier Crus (74ha) across the Côte d’Or.

The appellation Bonnes-Mares is located just south of the Clos de Tart, the neighbouring Grand Cru, forming a rectangle between the hollowed hillsides of Morey and Chambolle. More of it lies in the territory of Chambolle-Musigny than that of Morey-Saint-Denis. Its exposition is easterly and its altitude averages between 250 and 280 metres. Bouchard Père & Fils acquired 24 "acres" at Chambolle-Musigny and now produces a little over 1000 bottles of this wine per year. Bonnes-Mares is rich and fleshy with a mouth-filling body. It has a clearly defined structure, is full-bodied rather than flowery, and at times a little wild.

It will stand aging for as long as 30-50 years. Wine lovers argue over the nuances said to distinguish the Morey side of the appellation from the Chambolle end. The truth is that the roundness of the one and the elegance of the other are submerged in the delicately tannic power common to both. Its aromas evoke violet, humus, and underbrush.
