91 Points Robert Parker
The 2008 Beaune Marconnets emerges from the glass with dark cherries, plums, leather and sweet spices. It presents more body and textural richness than the Greves, with darker fruit tones and less florality. With time in the glass the wine’s inner perfume begins to emerge, hinting at what is to come in the future. Deeply spiced, minty notes wrap around the finish. This, too, needs to be cellared for a few more years. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2028.
