"The 2015 Bonnes Mares Grand Cru is excellent, opening in the glass with notes of peony, ripe cherries, briary fruits, potpourri, dark chocolate and coniferous forest floor—more wild in profile than Mugnier's other wines from Chambolle. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, concentrated and deep, with impressive power and a long finish. This is quite a dramatic Bonnes Mares by Mugnier's standards, and the only criticism one could make is that it doesn't possess the ineffable sense of completeness that distinguishes his Amoureuses and Musigny. Discussing his Bonnes Mares, Mugnier notes that half of the vineyard was replanted in 1988 and a quarter in 1980. As these young vines reach age 30, he observes, they have become "more Chambolle in character." 94 William Kelley

"Bright medium red. Slightly sauvage but fresh aromas of blueberry, raspberry, leather and earth. Suave on entry, then intense and firm in the middle palate, with its black fruit and spice flavors energized by strong minerality. Finishes very long, with serious building, dusty tannins. Mugnier says he finds a slight finishing coarseness here owing to the drought conditions in July of '15, which delayed the ripening of the tannins, but to my palate they are supported by the wine's dry extract." 93 Stephen Tanzer
