Discover the Bonnes-Mares appellation
Just outside Morey-Saint-Denis and Chambolle-Musigny, next to the Clos-de-Tart, the Bonnes-Mares vineyard is one of the most famous Grands Crus in all of Burgundy. Its wines have managed to make the Pinot Noir grape variety truly shine. Its parcels are also very well cared for, and easy to cultivate. Hence why the name "Bonnes-Mares" may probably come from the old French word "marrer", which means "to plow".
In total, the Bonnes-Mares AOC represents more than 15 hectares of land, shared between two communes of the Côte de Nuits. Each year, 470 hectoliters of full-bodied red wine is produced here and each and every bottle is given the status of Grand Cru. It's all made with Pinot Noir grapes (or Pinot Noirien, as it's often called in the region), planted in a brown clay, limestone and silt-laden soil.
