2005 Domaine Fougeray de Beauclair Bonnes Mares

In 1972, Jean-Louis Fougeray created Domaine Jean-Louis Fougeray. Over the years, the domaine grew to 25 acres with vineyards stretching from Marsannay to Savigny-les-Beaune. In 1986, Jean-Louis partnered with Bernard Clair to form Domaine Fougeray de Beauclair. This estate now owns 54 acres of vines, and bottles the only Bonnes Mares originating from the Morey-St.-Denis side of this Grand Cru vineyard. Current annual production is 10,000 cases. Patrice Oliver has been the winemaker since 1999. This is a superstar domaine that manages to keep its prices within reason (see also pages 10 and 13). · The Bonnes Mares from this domaine is always unusually approachable early in its evolution. This wine has the whole package from start to finish and is magnificent. Power with elegance. Reviewed August 6, 2007 WINERY » ARTICLE »

1991 Domaine Comte Georges de Vogue Bonnes-Mares

13.5% alc.. This Domaine can trace its roots back 550 years and today the 20th generation of the family is in charge. About 420 cases of Bonnes-Mares are produced each year from the Domaine’s holdings which are in the Chambolle portion of the vineyard. The vines average 29 years in age. Several critics have written that the Vogue wines of the 1990s are excellent and in great vintages are truly magnificent examples of fine Burgundy. · A lovely nose of ripe cherries with floral accents. Shy flavors of sweet red cherries, spice and a hint of citrus. Appears to be fading. A good wine, but disappointing considering the pedigree. Reviewed August 24, 2007 WINERY » ARTICLE »
