Henri Bonneau Cuvee Marie Beurrier 2014
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.
“There will be a single cuvee in 2014 and the 2014 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Marie Beurrier is a pretty, spice-filled wine that has Burgundian style in its texture, medium-bodied richness, integrated acidity and fine tannin. This estate has a history of excelling in so-called off years and this should be rock solid.”
92-92 points, Jeb Dunnuck, Oct 2017.
“This is finessed but not terribly complex. It is beginning to take on some development with a good sense of freshness and acidity. Elegant if not deep. Drinking Window 2021 – 2026.”
