Chambolle-Musigny

Les Bonnes Mares grand cru

Appellation: Grand Cru
Area under vine: 0.1656 hectares (3.87 ouvrées)
Location: Bonnes-Mares is unusual in that the entire vineyard is only 15.572 hectares, but is found in both the Chambolle-Musigny appellation (13.5417 hectares) and the Morey-Saint-Denis appellation (1.5155 hectares).
Sun exposure: South-east facing.
Soil: In the Middle Ages, the expression "marer la vigne" meant to tend vines, which explains the origins of this grand cru's name and ancient reputation. Bonnes-Mares is a slope vineyard, with a thin layer of clay soil on limestone subsoil. The wine is always very opulent on the palate with excellent structure and powerful tannins.
Grape variety: 100% Pinot Noir
When planted: 1929-1930
Vineyard: The vines are grown without the use of pesticides or insecticides, and only natural fertiliser (manure) is used. Ploughing keeps the soil loose and well-aerated, and no weed killers are applied.
Fermentation: The grapes are hand picked into small crates, sorted in the vat room and 100% destemmed. Cold fermentation for 7 days is followed by temperature-controlled alcoholic fermentation with two pigeages (punching the cap) a day and maceration for 21 days.
Barrel-ageing: Aged on the lees in oak barrels (50% new) for 15 months, with late-occurring, natural malolactic fermentation. Neither fined nor filtered. Racked and bottled by gravity flow.
Tasting notes: Bonnes-Mares' terroir produces great wines that are solid, direct, and earthy with a range of red fruit flavours typical of  Chambolle, accompanied by mineral nuances and, on occasion, forest floor overtones.
