Bertheau's 2015s are absolutely stunning.
As always, the Bonnes-Mares represents one of the high points of Bertheau's 2015 lineup.
Bertheau's parcel in Bonnes-Mares is 0.34 ha. It's a rare bottle, and that fact is all the more painful because it's a wine that I love.
He produces a gorgeous Bonnes-Mares. It offers up the Grand Cru's muscle along with a really impressive degree of finesse and agility.
2015 is one of the great red Burgundy vintages of the past three decades. The vintage boasts an incredibly concentrated profile with plentiful, but refined tannins, and a staggering amount of freshness and elegance for such a ripe vintage. It's a dream brew.
Bertheau's style flourished in 2015. The combination of vintage and producer created amazing results. In the 2015, the Bonnes-Mares boasts an incredible intensity and refinement. Bonnes-Mares' power is on display, but it's rendered with a startling amount of subtlety and energy.

There's no doubt that Bertheau's 2015 Bonnes-Mares will go down in the books as an epic vintage for the wine. Bertheau's wines are the archetypes of just how graceful and pure Burgundy can be. The 2015 Bonnes-Mares highlights this in a profound way.

Burghound: "Interestingly there is also a touch of sandalwood present here as well on the much more restrained nose of ripe red currant, earth, underbrush and a hint of the sauvage. As one would expect there is more volume, power and intensity to the relatively concentrated medium-bodied flavors that are shaped by moderately firm tannins on the beautifully persistent finish. This too would best be allowed at least 5 to 7 years of cellaring and should reward as many as 10 to 15. This too is very, very impressive."
