Professional Wine Reviews for R. Groffier Bonnes Mares Grand Cru 2006

Rated 93 by Wine Spectator
An explosive red, exuding aromas of flowers, wild berry and spice, followed by flavors of sweet red berries and mineral. There's a firm base of tannins, and this is bursting with energy. Fine length. Best from 2012 through 2025. 50 cases imported.
Rated 93 by Decanter
This too carries subtle wood toast coupled with a bit of wood spice that sets off the layered black fruit and slightly sauvage notes that are clearly picked up by the rich, full, muscled and notably powerful flavors that seemed less structured than they really are because of the velvety mouth...

Additional Information on R. Groffier Bonnes Mares Grand Cru 2006

Winery: R. Groffier

Varietal: Pinot Noir

Pinot Noir is one of the planet's most widely grown and enjoyed grape varietals, and thanks to the popularity of the key wines it is associated with – Burgundy and Champagne – it has successfully spread from its native home in France to much of the wine producing world. Pinot Noir means 'black pine' in French, and this refers to the extremely dark, inky color of the fruit, and the fact that it grows in conical bunches, resembling a large pine cone. It has long been revered for its wide range of refreshing, summery flavors, and the fact that it produces red wines of a beautiful garnet color and light body. More recently, sparkling wines made exclusively with Pinot Noir have been extremely popular, and the orchard notes found in the fizzy 'blanc des noirs' wines mark out just how versatile this grape varietal really is. Despite being notoriously difficult to grow, it isn't hard to see why this grape is now found in vineyards all over the world, as it is synonymous with romance and decadence, quality and fantastic flavor

Region: Burgundy

There are few more famous wine regions in the world than Burgundy, and this special area has given much to raise the profile of fine French wines around the world. Although most commonly associated with excellent quality red wines made with the Pinot Noir varietal, this region is home to several red and white varietals and produces and impressive range of wines, from still to sparkling, dry to sweet, full bodied and aged, and from to light and drinkable. The region of Burgundy has been producing excellent wines for centuries, with much evidence to suggest that the ancient Gauls were the first to cultivate the native vines which flourish here in the warm summers, and on the excellent soil fed by local rivers. This type of heritage has led to a wine industry highly unique, deeply traditional, and with an exquisite reputation to uphold.

Country: France

France is renowned across the globe for its quality wines and the careful expertise which goes into making them, but what is truly remarkable about this relatively small country is the vast range of wines it produces in such huge amounts each year. Not only are the finest red wines in the world said to come from the beautiful regions of Bordeaux and Burgundy, but elsewhere in the country we find the Champagne region, and areas such as the Rhone Valley and the Loire, whose white wines consistently receive awards and accolades by the plenty. This range is a result of the great variety of climatic conditions and terrain found in France, coupled with generations of wine makers working within single appellations. Their knowledge of specific terroirs and grape varieties has, over time, perfected the production of wines within their region, and the end results continue to impress the world to this day.

Appellation: Cote De Nuits

The Cotes de Nuits is a sub-region of France's famous Burgundy region, and is home to many of the world's finest red and white wines. The Cotes de Nuits benefits from the same climatic conditions as in the rest of the beautiful Cote d'Or, which enjoys long, hot summers and warm, dry ripening seasons. The soil of the region is particularly fine for viticulture, and it is enriched by plentiful limestone deposits which help give the Chardonnay grapes the region is famed for their distinctive chalky character. The Romans were the first people to introduce viticulture to the Cotes de Nuits, but ever since those ancient times, the area has been highly productive and dedicated to quality and excellence in the red, white and rosé wines it produces.
