The 2015 Bonnes-Mares Grand Cru has a very refined bouquet, the precocity of the vineyard harnessed and kept under control, very focused and delineated with intense black cherry and mulberry scents, crushed violet unfurling with time. I can see this blossoming down the line. The palate is very well balanced with crisp acidity, lively and tensile. There is not enormous weight and penetration towards the finish, preferring to remain quite linear and "well-behaved," yet it is certainly long and persistent, and it should bestow 20-30 years of drinking pleasure.

Strong wood and menthol characters bury the fruit at present. On the plus side the exceptionally rich and concentrated broad-shouldered flavors possess outstanding amounts of dry extract that impart a velvety texture to the plush finish that is slightly sweet due to the generous wood treatment. Note that like several wines reviewed above that my projected range assumes the underlying material is up to the job of successfully absorbing the wood treatment.
Deep, saturated red. Brooding yet sweet scents of cassis, kirsch, blueberry and licorice. The compellingly sappy flavors of black fruits and spices boast superb texture and depth. Finishes with outstanding, slowly rising length, the huge but fully ripe tannins in harmony with the wine's powerful fruit. As chewy as a solid: I'd love to taste this in 20 years. "I can't imagine using the stems here," noted Barnier. (ST)
