Tasting Notes

Bright medium red. The aromas of black cherry, blackberry and menthol show a medicinal reserve. Superconcentrated, chewy and fresh, offering a near-perfect balance of primary fruits and saline, soil-driven minerality. Jadot waited longer than in past years to harvest their fruit in Chambolle-Musigny, said Barnier, noting that this represents "a bit of a change in our pattern." This very rich, long Bonnes-Mares is wonderfully sweet and full, not to mention surprisingly tastable at this early stage. Stephen Tanzer
