Wine Critic Reviews for 2009 Dujac Bonnes Mares

(Domaine Dujac Bonnes Mares Grand Cru Red) A remarkably fresh and expressive nose displays high-toned red berry fruit, earth and mineral aromas that give way to firm, serious and equally mineral-driven big-bodied flavors that offer excellent verve on the well-muscled and especially structured finish that seems to go on without end. This positively dazzling effort is not quite old school in basic character though it knocks on the door of it and like several of these grands crus, will need 15 to 20+ years to reach its full prime. A 'wow' and potentially one of the greatest vintages ever for the Dujac Bonnes Mares, which is saying something given this wine's superb track record. (Drink starting 2027)

(Bonnes-Mares- Domaine Dujac) The 2009 Bonnes-Mares soars from the glass in a flat out great blend of sappy black cherries, plums, dark chocolate, gamebirds, a beautifully complex base of soil tones, woodsmoke and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, long and sappy, with a rock solid core of fruit, perfect balance, ripe tannins and superb grip on the focused and very, very long and seamless finish. Great wine. (Drink between 2020-2060)

The 2009 Bonnes-Mares is cool, implosive and totally reticent. In other words, classic young Bonnes-Mares. Sweet red cherries, flowers and mint sit on a bright, sinewy frame that gradually relaxes just enough to release the wine’s potential. There is more than enough verve and structure to support several decades of fine drinking. Today the blend of Dujac’s holdings in Bonnes-Mares is approximately equally divided between terres rouges and terres blanches. Anticipated maturity: 2024-2044.

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.
