About this Item

Bonnes-Mares, 1991
2 (1 x 2) 750ml
The Domaine was founded in 1924 by Georges Roumier. He began domaine bottling in 1945 and it is now one of the longest-established in domaine bottling in the Côte D’Or. This practice also helped grow the reputation of Domaine Roumier, which is known for producing highly-rated, sought-after wines. The 11.8-hectare domaine is run today by Georges son, Jean-Marie, and grandson, Christophe.

Critics Ratings

‘The perfumed and complex nose is really lovely with fine breadth, though some sous-bois. There is good richness and volume to the medium-bodied flavors that offer the same reasonably good depth as the nose but the finish, while by no means short, lacks vibrancy and lift’. - Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, 90/100 (Jun 2016)

‘Intense nose with wild strawberry, raspberry leaf, a touch of vanilla and dried fig. It exudes the precocity of the Cru, but lacks a little finesse. Still, the palate is supple and lithe, quite animally and leather, touches of cracked pepper towards the finish, which is a little diffuse.’  - Neal Martin, Wine Advocate, 89/100 (May 2010)
