“Grown at the very top of the bonnes mares vineyards, next to de Vogue and Leroy holdings, a combination of red soils and the stoney lighter soils. This helps keep a brighter style of Bonnes Mares.” -Mark Haisma
95 points. Tim Atkin, MW.
“Mark Haisma only gets a barrel’s worth of fruit to make this wine, but he’s made the most of it. Pale, elegant and aged in one-year-old oak, it’s sourced entirely from white soils. Restrained, polished and refined, with notes of bramble and raspberry, stylish oak and a floral note that lingers in the glass. One of the cheaper Bonnes Mares on the market. 2017-27” Tim Atkin, MW.

White soils, next to Leroy.
“Dark crimson. Rich and heady. Sweet and round fruit. Utterly beguiling! Maybe not for the very long term. Haisma is surprised by how rapidly it has evolved in November and early December 2015. Velvety texture. Very forward. Extraordinary. Total charmer. Long.” -Jancis Robinson
“There’s something special about the texture of this wine. Smooth with lovely structure and purity. Very textural with fine red cherries and plums. 95/100” -Jamie Goode
Mark Haisma was named a “Top 25 Producers to Watch” by Tim Atkin in both 2013 & 2014.
“He seems to have struck gold. His wines have an excellent balance between fruit, expression and refreshment without being in any way wimpish. The wines are also, appetisingly, bone dry.” -Jancis Robinson
Mark spent a decade working together with the late Dr. Bailey Carrodus of Yarra Yering in the Yarra Valley. His passion for making a wine that expresses the purity of the fruit and further reflects the soil they are grown is what drew him to Burgundy. He makes wines that are bright and fresh and uses a ‘hands off’ approach to create a pure expression of the terroir.
