Wine Critic Reviews for 2004 Dujac Bonnes Mares

(Bonnes-Mares- Domaine Dujac) The 2004 Dujac Bonnes-Mares is outstanding, as it offers up a classic expression of this great terroir, lovely focus and purity and a very clean and elegant profile. The bouquet is a fine blend of red and black cherries, raw cocoa, a great base of minerally soil tones, coffee, fresh herbs and a touch of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, pure and very complex, with a rock solid core of fruit, lovely transparency, moderate tannins, sound acids and lovely length and grip on the still slightly peppery finish. Like the Dujac Combottes and Clos de la Roche, the 2004 Bonnes-Mares only needs a handful of years in the cellar to fully reach its apogee, and it should prove to be a very lovely example of this cru from the domaine. The wine is beautifully balanced and should have no difficulty aging gracefully for at least another couple of decades. (Drink between 2014-2035).

Medium red-ruby color. Sappy, nuanced nose combines red cherry, fresh herbs and minerals. Wonderfully vibrant in the mouth, with sappy, sweet cherry and mineral flavors lifted by a note of cinnamon. This really coats the mouth with dusty extract. Conveys an impression of very even ripening. Finishes with suave tannins and noteworthy energy. This strikes me as very Chambolle in style. This is more harmonious today than the Clos la Roche but will be even better with seven or eight years in the bottle.

(Domaine Dujac Bonnes Mares Grand Cru Red) A more deeply pitched nose of dark and blue berry fruits laced with earth and a lovely and distinct violet note that is followed by very rich, dense and serious flavors that finish with noticeable austerity. As it usually is, this is a powerful wine that possesses huge length and is sufficiently well structured that it will require the better part of a decade to really open up and reveal its full, and considerable, potential. The best of these '04s. (Drink starting 2014).

If you have a burning passion for masterfully crafted, mouth-watering, mind-expanding wines, then regular visits to France are probably already in your schedule, and for a good reason.

Type of Wine Burgundy Red: If you have a craving for some beautiful, mind-expanding Pinot Noir, few regions can match the talent and consistency of Burgundy. The grape almost seems like it evolved for this very region, and its essence will stimulate your senses and arouse your imagination. Drink deep and experience almost spiritual enlightenment.
Varietal Pinot Noir: Pinot Noir is possibly the most versatile red grape when it comes to the ways it's been used over the years. From red wines to sparkling wines and beyond, there aren't many places where you can avoid hearing about it, and for a good reason. It's often easy to spot a bottle of Pinot Noir simply by the pale, translucent color, which transitions into a shade reminiscent of old-timey brickwork, adding a lovely dash of country charm to an already awe-inspiring drink.
