Bonnes Mares 2009, Bruno Clair
myrtilles (blue berries) look blue? This Bonnes Mares 2009, tasted in April 2011, is a floral letter delivered in a vanilla and strawberry envelope. Tart initially, it becomes more charming, elegant, feminin. A truly gorgeous wine, incredible violet aromas leap out of the glass after a few minutes, combined with blue berry flavours. A velvety style supported by a good structured finish at the end. A push-up. Another Absolutely Splendid wine from the domaine which will offer much pleasure over the next 10 years. Possibly not much longer.
