2005 Domaine Fougeray de Beauclair Bonnes Mares

In 1972, Jean-Louis Fougeray created Domaine Jean-Louis Fougeray. Over the years, the domaine grew to 25 acres with vineyards stretching from Marsannay to Savigny-les-Beaune. In 1986, Jean-Louis partnered with Bernard Clair to form Domaine Fougeray de Beauclair. This estate now owns 54 acres of vines, and bottles the only Bonnes Mares originating from the Morey-St.-Denis side of this Grand Cru vineyard. Current annual production is 10,000 cases. Patrice Oliver has been the winemaker since 1999. This is a superstar domaine that manages to keep its prices within reason (see also pages 10 and 13). · The Bonnes Mares from this domaine is always unusually approachable early in its evolution. This wine has the whole package from start to finish and is magnificent. Power with elegance. Reviewed August 6, 2007
