Bonnes Mares is an extremely sought after grand cru. It sits at the belly of slope in Chambolle Musigny (1.5 hectares in Morey St Denis). The incline is gentle and can be divided into two parts: the upper section with Terres Blanches and the lower with Terres Rouges. Bonnes Mares produces wines with depth and colour. The nose is complex, potent, opulent and substantial. The palate however can show mineral austerity when young. This austerity turns to suavity and refined elegance with age. In 1985 when Domaine Clair-Dau was divided between family, Domaine Bart inherited a huge one hectare plot within Bonnes Mares. Their parcel lies alongside Domaine de Vogues’ parcel. At less than one third of Vogues price, this could be the best value Bonnes Mares available. Half of Bart’s vines were planted in 1926/1927 and have a lot of millerandage. Both of these factors result in an incredibly magical wine. Bart handles their grand crus differently opting for 50% new wood and 50% whole bunch, as they believe the density of the fruit can withstand the winemaking decisions. Fourteen barrels are made. A full nose of sweet, suve fruit and violets. Powerful yet dialled back. Light on its feet. The palate is so full and sumptuous with a myriad of beautifully ripe plum, blackberries, liqueurs and forest floor. Very long, very silky and pleasurably textural.
