Fougeray de Beauclair
Bonnes-Mares Grand Cru 2010
AVAILABLE IN 750ML BOTTLES
It starts with an intoxicating perfume of spicy forest fruits. The flavours sit broadly across the palate delivering powerful sensations to every part of the palate in perfect harmony. They seem to last and last. The oak is milder than you might expect - to make way for the glorious Bonnes Mares pinot. Nirvana for the pinotphile!

>> 97 Points - Gilbert & Gaillard Review
>> "...excellent concentration to the rich, powerful and muscular large-scaled flavours that are blessed with ample amounts of dry extract before concluding in a very firm mocha and plum-infused finish that delivers outstanding length. This is built-to-age and should amply reward 12 to 15 years of cellar time."
