Tasting Notes and Scores

Wine Advocate
93 February, 2014

The 2011 Bonnes-Mares Grand Cru is blessed with a fragrant bouquet of dried violet petals, hints of burnt toast and plenty of black fruit vying for attention, however, it needs a couple of years to fully coalesce. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannins on the entry. This is a big wine, filling the mouth with ease with layers of black fruit, tobacco and a saline tang on the aftertaste. It is quite austere on the finish at the moment. Drink 2017-2030+.

Allen Meadows

This is also brilliantly perfumed if not quite as elegant as the Amoureuses with its broad ranging nose of earth, red currant, plum liqueur and lovely floral notes. There is a firm minerality to the remarkably rich, powerful and concentrated big-bodied flavors that possess both excellent volume and first-rate punch on the hugely long and youthfully austere finish. This is a stunner of a wine that will need pretty much all of 15 years, and perhaps even 20, to arrive at its full majority. Drink: 2028+ Tasted: Jan 15, 2014
