An admirably fresh, cool and airy mix displays notes of lavender, oak, red berries, cassis, spice, wet stone and discreet game nuances along with just enough herbal character to notice. There is good richness to the mouth coating and muscular broad-shouldered flavors that possess good delineation and excellent energy before culminating in a dusty, balanced and palate coating finish that delivers excellent length though the herbal character does resurface. This slight vegetal element is admittedly subtle and may very well dissipate with age but for the moment it's sufficiently noticeable that it is a concern. Tasted: Jan 15, 2014. Drink: 2023+

Tasted blind at the Burgundy 2011 horizontal tasting in Beaune. Lighter in color, there are plenty of pretty, demure red berry fruits on the nose of the Bonnes-Mares 2011 from Domaine de la Vougeraie: very pure and translating the essence of Pinoté, albeit not the kind of aromatics for someone seeking opulence. The palate is medium-bodied with very well-judged acidity. This just glides across the palate and down the throat in effortless fashion. Bon vin. eRobertParker.com.November, 2014

Domainede la Vougeraie was created in 1999 when Jean-Claude Boisset decided to collate all of his vineyard holdings from his various negociant companies under one name. The name is inspired by Boisset’s significant holdings in the village of Vougeot and the domaine itself covers over 25 hectares of vineyards more than 20 different appellations. With six grand crus (Musigny,BonnesMares, Closde Vougeot, Charmes-ChambertinLes Mazoyères, CortonClos du Roi and Corton Charlemagne En Charlemagne), Domaine de la Vougeraie is one of Burgundy’s leading domaines.The premier and grand cru vineyards are all farmed biodynamically and yields are carefully restricted. Winemaker Pierre Vincent favours a delicate approach: hand sorting, cool maceration and the grapes are only punched down once a day. This results in elegant, complex wines which are of consistently high quality.
