Comte de Vogue
The Bonnes Mares reveals an impressive dark ruby color, a tight, reticent bouquet, medium body, high, hard, astringent tannin, and a compact, concentrated feel in the mouth. It is not a sure bet given the elevated tannin level, but it is a well-made, promising Pinot Noir that should be cellared for 6-7 years. The 1993s produced at this renowned estate are backward, stern, structured wines that optimists will deem successful if the fruit holds and the tannin melts away.
