Bonnes-Mares Grand Cru, 2001, Domaine Comte Georges de Vogüé
Tasting note: There is superb aromatic density here as aromas of blueberries, earth and animale notes blend perfectly with soaring black pinot fruit and big, robust, intense, sturdy yet refined flavors underpinned by firm but ripe structure. This is much bigger than the 1er with more intensity but not the sheer breadth of complexity. Structured and rather dry at the moment but this just seems to ooze freshly crushed black fruit sap everywhere and the tannins are completely buried.
