Tasted blind at the Burgfest tasting in Beaune, the 2013 Bonnes Mares Grand Cru from de Vogue did not show as well as I was expecting. On this occasion it was showing too much oak on the nose that was masking terroir expression -- at least at the moment. The palate is medium-bodied with supple and rounded black fruit, well integrated new oak, quite plush in style with more blue fruit emerging towards the finish. It just lacks a little personality, perhaps exposed by its juxtaposition against other Bonnes-Mares. Closing down maybe? Tasted September 2016.
