Bonnes Mares ( Austrlian Back Label ) - Mugnier, J F

75 IB 0 1 - 850
Tasting Notes for Bonnes Mares ( Austrlian Back Label ) - Mugnier, J F, 2005:
The Mugnier 2005 Bonnes-Mares (of which there will be only around 125 cases) leads with aromas of ripe mulberry, blackberry, roasted meat, black tea, horehound and musky florality. This is one of those decidedly darkly-hued 2005s, and lacks the refreshment, the treble high-tones, or quite the focus of its siblings. Where this wine looks likely to shine is in its depth of mineral and earthy (stone and humus) manifestations, which already dominate the finish. Certainly this represents a dramatic departure in character from most other Bonnes-Mares of the vintage, which I am at a loss to explain. Frederic Mugnier works from a just-expanded and superbly appointed cellar, and a tasting of his 2004s confirms that he is scoring hits even when Nature does not make it easy as she did the following year. Mugnier advocates unusually late but limited pigeage. ÙAfter all,Î he opines, Ùwe take great care not to crush the berries, so it doesnÕt make sense to do an early pigeage and break them,Î and late punch-down further extends the fermentation.

Volnay - Lafarge, Michel

75 IB 1 0 650 -
Tasting Notes for Volnay - Lafarge, Michel, 2005:
Informed by several parcels below the premier cru slopes, the Lafarge 2005 Volnay displays ultra-bright, fresh red currant accented by cherry pit and chalk, with a fascinating counterpoint of oily texture and refreshing brightness. In all of these respects, the wine is quite consistent with the character of this yearÕs generic cuvees and Cote de Beaune Villages. But here we have brown spice, citrus zest and sweet floral complexities, and a bright, mineral-saturated, zesty spicy persistence that suggests premier cru quality. In its trumpet-like bright treble, this sounds atypically lilting notes and in a major key, when compared with the vintage norm. The entire Lafarge collection was predictably still in barrel when I visited in February, with even the generic cuvees due for assembly only in March. Speaking of generic bottlings, I donÕt know of another domaine that has three of them, and I certainly doubt that there is one with three routinely worthy of attention even by those with the disposable income to afford premier crus.

Vosne Romanee Les Suchots - Grivot, Jean

75 DP 0 6 - 195
Tasting Notes for Vosne Romanee Les Suchots - Grivot, Jean, 2005:
GrivotÕs 2005 Vosne-Romanee Les Suchots smells sweetly of ripe black raspberry and cassis with brown spices, offers an almost fat generosity of ripe fruit and rich texture on the palate, yet contrasts that with saline, chalky minerality and never loses its thread of fresh fruit acidity. The finish erupts with ripe fruit, flowers, and spice. This combines amplitude with energy. Grivot is certainly right to call it the most extroverted of his Vosne crus, adding Ùperhaps a little too much so,Î but why should it hide its sex appeal? Etienne Grivot aimed this year for gentle extraction (essentially without pigeage), then watchful preservation of the freshness, subtleties and refinement inherent in near-perfect raw material. He performed some very light chaptalization to extend the fermentations. Given the health and natural concentration of his vinous raw material, he felt no need to sulfur or rack the wines until shortly prior to bottling (without filtration), which was the stage at which I tasted.
