Tasting Notes

Like the Fuées, this is quite firmly reduced and will definitely benefit from a thorough aeration. The dense and sappy big-bodied flavors possess a relatively polished mouthfeel despite the presence of obvious muscle on the powerful, serious and youthfully austere finish. Extended patience will be required.

Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (73), January 2019

Aromas of sweet red berries, cherries and grilled meats mingle with nuances of spices, dark chocolate and peony in a complex bouquet, introducing the 2016 Bonnes Mares Grand Cru, a full-bodied, dense and layered wine that's broad-shouldered, rich and dramatic, with a deep, succulent core of fruit and a long, precise finish. It was wide open when I tasted it, and it will be fascinating to compare with the 2015 and 2016 renditions of Mugnier's Bonnes Mares in a few years time to see if the latter remains more extravagant than the former. Drink 2026-2065
