Reviews/Information
"94 out of 100 - The Potel 2006 Bonnes Mares is another case of truth in terroir, as it leads with a site-typical savagery of tart red fruits, pungent herbs, and smoked meats. Red currant, raspberry, sage, wormwood, sassafras, licorice, black tea, white pepper, and ham hock are all contributory to the rich, dense-packed, invigorating display, culminating in a finish that practically gangs up on your palate. This is not where to look for the gentle or subtle side of 2006 Burgundian Pinot, and it may never shed a certain rusticity of tannin. I would anticipate at least a dozen years of excitement from bottles. The wine was actually a bit reduced and needed time to gather its formidable forces before it really landed the first punch." - David Schildknecht, Wine Advocate
