Domaine Comte Georges de Vogue Bonnes Mares 2011

Domaine Comte Georges de Vogue Bonnes Mares 2011

Sku: P44165

The domaine owns a block of vines accounting for 2.7 hectares and an average production of ~420 cases per year. The vines are located entirely in the Chambolle portion of the vineyard that is closest to the village itself, this provides for a slightly more elegant Bonnes-Mares, but one that is heavily scented with violet and peony. The domaine's vines average 29 years old.

Tasted blind at the Burgundy 2011 horizontaltasting in Beaune. Limpid in color, de Vogue’s Bonnes Mares 2011 has quite a precocious bouquet with black cherries, cassis and crushed violets that demonstrates impressive clarity. The palate is medium-bodied with sweet ripe black cherries and cassis fruit underlying minerality. It feels backward compared to two other Bonnes-Mares ‘11s tasted alongside, although there is impressive persistence on the precise finish. This is a classy Bonnes-Mares, albeit one that I feel is surpassed by the succeeding vintage.
