Wine of the Week: Domaine Bertheau Bonnes Mares 2009

Domaine Bertheau Bonnes Mares 2009: To date, this is my favorite red Burgundy of the 2009 vintage.  Light ruby-garnet.  A beautiful, complete, intense wine with mouthwatering aromas of deep red strawberries and stones.  Great acidity on the attack.  On the palate, spicy red berries are perfectly balanced atop a bed of firm, ripe tannins.  This wine epitomizes the phrase “power without weight.”  A finesse-driven, never-ending finish bodes well for decades of cellaring.  Drink now-2050.  (96 points)
