Brooding but seductive raspberry coulis nose, very ripe and dense. Good attack, but the tannins creep up on the mid-palate rapidly, cloaking the wine in a light grippiness that is positive and invigorating. Good acidity gives persistence and zest. The balance is impeccable, so it should prove long-lived, giving pleasure at various stages of its life. Drinking Window 2018 - 2035
The 2015 vintage of Bonnes-Mares is one of the most beautiful young examples of this wine chez Mugnier that I have had the pleasure to taste! The bouquet soars from the glass in a sappy and very pure blend of cherries, red plums, blood orange, cocoa, pigeon, mustard seed, chalky soil tones and cedar. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and very transparent in personality, with marvelous sappiness at the core, vibrant acids, great freshness and bounce and a long, complex and fine-grained finish. A stunning young Bonnes-Mares. 2025-2075.
Deep red with ruby tones. Slightly leathery reduction to the deep aromas of dark berries, licorice and subtle brown spices. Velvety and highly concentrated; tactile but quite closed in the early going. Hiding its primary fruit today but this very deep soil-driven wine boasts excellent extract and an intriguing wildness. The ripe tannins are very well integrated from the start.(ST)
There is a touch of brett on the otherwise very fresh aromas of red and dark currant fruit that display hints of earth and spice. There is good detail to the powerful and concentrated flavors that possess plenty of dry extract on the velvety yet firm and mildly austere finale. This is clean in the mouth and thus it's possible that this may clean up before its bottled and my projected range offers the benefit of the doubt.
The 2015 Bonnes-Mares Grand Cru was quite open and expressive on the nose, perhaps not as concentrated as the Chambolle les Amoureuses, but with pretty floral accents developing as it opens. Maybe compared to a dozen other 2015 Bonnes-Mares that I tasted from barrel, it is missing the pizzazz, the opulence that defines this vineyard. The palate is medium-bodied with an energetic, orange rind-tinged opening, quite structured in the mouth with a classic-styled finish that is much more reticent than I would have anticipated. To be honest, I often find Bonnes-Mares outflanked by Mugnier's two premier crus and that is no different in this vintage.(NM)
