Blackberries and a myriad of spices are found in the nose of the light to medium-bodied 2001 Bonnes Mares. Satin-textured and broad shouldered on the attack this wine reveals outstanding depth to its blackberry and blueberry-flavored character. Its dark fruit-laden finish displays a firm woody tannin-laced characteristic. Drink it over the next 7 years. According to Francois Millet this famed estate's highly talented winemaker 2001 was a vintage that wished to produce high yields. "We dropped half the fruit before veraison (when the grapes change color) yet harvested 35 hectoliters per hectare a high yield for this domaine." Burgundy's resident poet Millet stated that "2001's fruit is its sensuality the acidity is its conscience and soul." While my pragmatic mind is incapable of understanding the meaning of his words it is clear that Millet fashioned some of the finest red Burgundies produced in 2001.
