About this Item

2002 Bonnes-Mares
2 (1 x 2) 750ml

Domaine Jacques-Frédéric Mugnier was founded in 1863 by Frédéric Mugnier’s great-great-grandfather. In 1985, Frederic – a fifth generation Mugnier – took over, and somehow managed to combine the running of the property with his job as an airline pilot. He now focuses his efforts solely on winemaking. The estate is renowned for its Chambolle-Musigny and is the second largest owner in Musigny.

Critics Ratings

‘An outstanding, potentially exceptional wine, the ruby-colored 2002 Bonnes Mares (total production is 150 cases) bursts forth with a magnificent nose of candied cherries, roses, and ripe raspberries. Medium to full-bodied, its harmonious character is wonderfully sweet, seductive, and sexy. Satin-textured, it offers a myriad of pure, edge free red fruit flavors in its long, refined character.’ - Pierre Rovani, Wine Advocate, 92-94/100 (Jun 2004)

‘Ultra elegant and high-toned red and black fruit aromas cut with obvious earth notes are followed by rich, full-bodied flavors that are sappy yet edgy, all culminating in a powerful and punchy finish. The aspect that impresses me the most however is the impeccable balance. In short, a gorgeous wine.’ - Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, 92/100 (Jan 2005)
