Bonnes Mares & Friends (2), i sommi interpreti

Here we come to the absolute best Pinot Noir in the world. As we said before what makes the difference is the ‘elbow’ in Burgundy compared to the expression of the cru. Not that the latter is bad and, in fact, this allows for ‘artistic’ expression, with connotations strongly tied to the style of the vineyard. It is as if a host of painters were all given the same colors and they then turned around and created works that expressed their individual brilliance and talent. The fact remains that depending on the interpretation or the specific parcel where the vines grow, Bonnes Mares can produce austere wines with a long lifespan, quite common for Morey St.Denis, or bold yet graceful and elegant ones, like in Chambolle Musigny.
