A ripe yet discreet and restrained cool red berry fruit nose offers up notes of warm earth, spice, plum and layered floral hints. There is excellent richness and overt power to the relatively refined middle weight plus flavors thanks to the fine-grained tannins that coat the mouth on the explosively long finish. This is a beautifully complex effort that is a bit less austere than usual. Drink: 2030+

An exuberant, no holds-barred Burgundy, the 2012 Bonnes-Mares is utterly captivating. The tannins are fierce so, readers are going to have to be very patient. Still, there is plenty to look forward to. The 2012 is a classic, vertical Bonnes-Mare built in verticality and intensity. Lavender, mint, violets and white pepper meld into the super-expressive finish. 2024 - 2042
