Groffier failed to please on this trip

As well as this wine we had a Groffier Amoureuses 1999 on our trip which was similarly crap. I expect far more from these vineyards from a producer who is generally well thought of.

Bonnes-Mares Grand Cru 2000, Robert Groffier

This is quite medicinal. Ripe certainly, but not remotely attractive. Where is the pleasure in this nose? I am neither charmed nor impressed. The palate has a lot of nice fruit, but it just dies. No complexity either. This is distinctly third-rate Bonnes-Mares, give me Dujac, Roumier or Mugnier any day. Sure, this is a quite fruity bottle of Burgundy, but there is no Bonnes-Mares in this.
