Tasting Notes

This is quite ripe as there are notes of mocha and wood to the plum liqueur, spice and rose petal-suffused nose. This is rich to the point of opulence and this impression of lavishness is accentuated by the presence of copious quantities of dry extract that renders the very firm tannic spine all but invisible today on the strikingly long and well-balanced finish. This is a relatively refined Bonnes Mares but even so it will certainly require extended cellaring to reach its peak. However, for those who enjoy younger fruit, the sappy mouthfeel should allow this to be enjoyed on the earlier side.

Score: 95Allen Meadows, (69), January 2018

Bright, dark red with ruby tones. Sexy, carnal aromas of black cherry, black raspberry and chocolate, with superripe porty and resiny suggestions and an oaky element. Large-scaled and thick but the dark fruit, mocha and brown spice flavors are energized by outstanding mineral lift. Finishes with substantial dusty, fine-grained tannins and rising, unflagging length. This is nearly impossible to scrape off your palate--but why would you want to? This hugely dense, classically dry Bonnes-Mares will need a good decade in the cellar to express its inherent complexity.
