The appellation

At the start of Michel de Saint-Pierre’s novel The Aristocrats, set in Burgundy, the incorrigible twins Osmond and Louis-César get their hands on a bottle of Bonnes Mares 1937 forgotten in the cellars of the family château. Secretly, greedily, they drink the “subtle, fiery” liquid straight from the bottle. Drunk in this way, or more conventionally, this Grand Cru always leads to unforgettable memories!
