A tight, linear and ever so pretty red with blackberry, blueberry and wet-earth character. Medium body and firm tannins. Savory and minerally.
The 2016 Bonalgue is pure Merlot picked from 3-15 October at 46 hectoliters per hectare, then matured in 50% new oak barrels. It has a lovely, pure and winsome bouquet with precise redcurrant and blackberry scents that gently unfurl in the glass, the oak neatly integrated. The palate is medium-bodied with supple and juicy tannin, clean black fruit laced with tobacco, seguing into a precise and quite persistent finish. Maybe not quite up there with the 2015, but certainly not far off. (NM)
The 2016 Bonalgue makes a strong first impression with its fleshy, voluptuous personality. Although not especially complex, the 2016 has lovely depth of fruit and plenty of presence. Hints of mocha, smoke and red plum round things out nicely. Tasted two times. (AG)
A fresher-styled, fragrant Pomerol with sappy fruit and slightly chalky tannins that bounce through the mid-palate. Extremely drinkable in the mid term. Drinking Window 2025 - 2040. (JA)
