This wine was named after Bonneau's wife’s aunt.
“Monsieur Bonneau’s Cuvée Marie Beurrier bottling is a decidedly deeper and more powerful wine than his regular Châteauneuf du Pape, and plays the role of La Tâche in the Bonneau cellars to his Réserve des Célestins’ Romanée-Conti (of course within the strapping and powerful idiom of Châteauneuf). To my palate this is the most classic expression of Châteauneuf du Pape magic in the Bonneau cellars.”
John Gilman, A View From The Cellar.
“A sensational vintage here, the 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Marie Beurrier may be the finest vintage ever for this cuvee. Beautifully textured, full-bodied, thick and unctuous, it offers soaring notes of kirsch, crushed flowers, garrigue, melted licorice and spice. Softer and more rounded than the Celestins (and from when I tasted it last year), it's one sexy Chateauneuf du Pape that shows the class of this incredible vintage.”
93-95 points, Jeb Dunnuck, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate Oct 2015.
