A focused wine which marries elegant refinement to considerable power, with layers of ripe cherry and red berry fruit allied to woodsy earth and mineral notes both on the nose and palate, ending in a long, silky finish.
"A wine of great distinction, with a powerful yet refined perfume of violets and red berries and a finely balanced, aristocratic fruit richness on the palate. The subtle tannins carry into a prolonged finish." - ST IWC 93

Intense and unevolved, with blackberry, earth and mineral flavors and a firm backbone. Almost impenetrable now, yet the finish is long and fresh. Best from 2009 through 2018.

Jadot’s parcel of the Grand Cru vineyard of Bonnes Mares lies within the commune of Chambolle-Musigny, on steep slopes rising above the village of Chambolle. In this vineyard, the calcium content of the soil is relatively low, making for a more robust wine than Le Musigny, although extremely elegant. The Pinot Noir grapes are fermented in vats for up to one month and matured in oak barrels for 18 to 20 months before bottling.
