DescriptionBonnes Mares 1997
"Very ripe, nicely complex, ever-so-slightly roasted fruit that displays a subtle floral note leads to round, medium-bodied, nicely nuanced and earthy flavors of obvious breed and fine finishing length. This is not an especially big wine by the standards of Roumier and his Bonnes Mares but it manages to deliver good elegance for the vintage and while it is approaching its peak, it could use another few years in the cellar first. A fine if not great effort that is developing a slight herbal note on the discreetly toasty finish." (89 pts. Allen Meadows, Burghound, Sept. 2008)
Estimate: $700 - $900.
