The 2020 Domaine Robert Groffier Bonnes Mares is a remarkable red wine that emanates elegance and refinement. Hailing from the prestigious Burgundy region in France, specifically the sub-appellation of Bonnes Mares in Chambolle Musigny, this wine is a testament to the artistry and expertise of the renowned producer, Domaine Robert Groffier.

In the glass, this wine displays a deep, rich crimson color that hints at its power and intensity. The nose initially holds back, teasing the senses with subtle aromas that gradually unfurl to reveal slightly tertiary black fruit, tobacco, and crushed limestone notes. There is a touch of flintiness that adds a captivating allure to the bouquet.

On the palate, the Bonnes Mares Grand Cru showcases its medium-bodied nature and fine, filigree tannins. The texture is silky and the acidity is impeccably balanced, contributing to a sense of poise and grace. This particular vintage is hailed as one of Nicolas Groffier's finest achievements to date, exemplifying the producer's commitment to crafting exceptional wines.

Notable wine critics have praised this wine for its outstanding qualities. According to Neal Martin of Vinous, the 2020 Bonnes Mares is incredibly elegant and refined, showcasing the true potential of this esteemed Grand Cru. Jasper Morris, from Inside Burgundy, lauds the wine for its succulent and rich fruit profile, noting its resemblance to a white soil style of Bonnes Mares. Wine Spectator also joins the chorus of acclaim, awarding the wine a remarkable score of 97 and highlighting its dense yet refined character, with flavors of black cherry, black currant, and sandalwood.

While this wine is undeniably impressive in its youth, it has the potential to develop further with age. It is recommended to cellar it for a few years to allow its tightly wound structure to fully integrate and reveal its true complexity. However, if you simply cannot resist the allure of this exceptional wine, it can certainly be enjoyed now with great pleasure.

Overall, the 2020 Domaine Robert Groffier Bonnes Mares is a wine that embodies the essence of Burgundy, showcasing the purity of Pinot Noir and the artistry of a skilled producer. It is a wine that demands attention and admiration, and it is sure to captivate the senses of even the most discerning wine connoisseurs.
