Bonnes Mares appellation is produced on the communes of Chambolle-Musigny and Morey-Saint-Denis. Here, Morey-Saint-Denis and Chambolle-Musigny demonstrate the ability of the Côte de Nuits to blend two distinct temperaments into a single personality.
Bonnes Mares is rich and fleshy with mouth-filling body. It has a clearly-defined structure, 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.
