The 2012 Bonnes-Mares Grand Cru was showing just a little reduction when I tasted it from barrel, but you can easily discern what will inevitably be a fabulous bouquet with intense dark cherry and cassis fruit lurking underneath and waiting to blossom once in bottle. Peeking deeper into the aromatics, there is just wonderful mineralite. The palate is structured and precise on the entry. Here is a tight fist of black fruit – a serious Bonnes-Mares compared to others, with a beguiling sense of symmetry and just incredible length. This is stunning. ||Christophe Roumier was multitasking when I arrived at his domaine in Chambolle-Musigny: his mobile constantly trilling and tasting parties arriving in haphazard fashion, running here and running there. And as we know, men are not cut out for multitasking. No wonder he complained about his headache, though hopefully the aspirin, washed down with a glug of Musigny, relieved his mal de tete. But generally Christophe Roumier was in top form – just like his wines. He commenced the harvest on 22 September after the usual travails of the growing season that reduced his crops. He rued the fact that he is undergoing an expansion of his cellars, but after 2012 and a meagre 2013, has little to put in them. He suggested a comparison between 2010 and 2012, though the latter is less tannic and more “weightless” – a great word to describe many of this vintage’s wines. This year there is all but one and a half barrels of his elusive Musigny. It is an utterly transcendental wine, perhaps equal to the 2005 when I encountered that out of barrel, but if that proves just a wee bit difficult to find, then the Clos de la Bussieres is a quite brilliant Morey Saint Denis that will offer immense pleasure over the next 20 years.

Reduction compromises the purity of the nose. There is excellent size, weight and power to the big-bodied, intense and concentrated flavors that possess copious amounts of dry extract that imparts a seductive texture and buffers the very firm tannic spine on the hugely long finish. This is a very big yet impeccably well-balanced wine that should also age for years. Tasted: Jan 15, 2014. Drink: 2027+
