Vinous

(Rating 93-95) The 2018 Bonnes-Mares Grand Cru is raised in 25% new oak and is almost entirely made from whole bunches. That stem addition gently guides the aromatics here, imparting a subtle pepperiness and earthiness that combines deftly with the vivid black fruit; perhaps there is less blue fruit here compared to other Bonnes-Mares this vintage. The palate is well balanced with supple tannins and a fine bead of acidity, reminiscent of de Vogüé in some ways. The slightly confit finish manages to retain impressive freshness. It is missing a little persistence, but otherwise this is a fine, quite delicious Bonnes-Mares. Reviewed by Neal Martin. Tasting date: November 2019. Drinking window: 2023 - 2045.

2018 Domaine Robert Groffier Pere & Fils Bonnes-Mares Grand Cru

ABOUT THE PRODUCER

Domaine Robert Groffier is based in the village of Morey-Saint-Denis and is famous for having some of the most enviable sites in the Côte de Nuits, including a full hectare within Chambolle-Musigny Premier Cru Les Amoureuses – one of the most fiercely collected vineyards in Burgundy.

The domaine also has a full hectare of vines in the Bonnes Mares Grand Cru and half a hectare of Chambertin Clos de Bèze, as well as plots in Chambolle-Musigny Premier Cru Les Hauts Doix and Premier Cru Les Sentiers, and a village Gevrey-Chambertin Les Seuvrées. 

The estate’s origins date back to the 19th century when Frédéric Groffier began growing grapes in the Côte de Nuits. Jules Groffier took over in the 1950s, and the domaine was named after his son Robert when the estate started to bottle and sell its own wines. Today it is run by Robert Groffier’s grandson Nicolas Groffier.

The estate typically uses 20 to 25% whole-bunch fermentation, with grapes chilled for a week prior to fermentation to increase aromatic complexity. The wines undergo fairly extended maceration of 20 days, with frequent but short punch-downs, prior to being pressed off skins and matured in barrel. The Grands Crus see 100% new oak, the Premiers Crus and village wines significantly less.
