    Bonnes Mares 2016
    H. Boillot
    Bottle (6)

    "A reserved, cool and more elegant nose combines notes of plum, black berry and violet nuances along with plenty of earth influence where the supporting wood character is more discreet. The exceptionally rich and full-bodied flavors possess a textured mouth feel in large part because of the impressive amount of sap before culminating in a driving if slightly warm finish where the very dense tannins are largely if not completely buffered. This is a classic Bonnes Mares it's a mix of power, muscle and a certain amount of refinement." (94 pts. Allen Meadows, Burghound #70, Apr. 2018)

    "Classical red-soil Bonnes-Mares perfume of raspberry, redcurrant, iron and brown spice. Offers a compelling combination of thickness, density and sucrosité, with its red fruit flavors complicated by clove, cinnamon and aromatic herbs and captivating saline minerality; there's a mineral-driven spiciness that reminds me of the Volnay Caillerets. This wonderfully energetic wine finishes with lovely subtle floral/spicy perfume and rising length, with piquant notes of blood orange and lemon contributing to an impression of weightlessness. A very sophisticated, refined Bonnes-Mares in the making." (93-96 pts. Stephen Tanzer, Vinous, Nov. 2017)
