The 2015 Bonnes-Mares Grand Cru came across subtly on the nose compared to the les Amoureuses and required more patience when tasted from barrel. It is not a flamboyant or ostentatious Bonnes-Mares, prioritizing precision and classicism, not to imply that it shortchanges you on the intensity ones expects from this vineyard. The palate is fresh from the start: a wonderful structure and especially for Bonnes-Mares, outstanding mineralité in situ and very tensile with so much energy from the blueberry and blackberry fruit that you can feel this wine two minutes later. Bridled with impressive grip and structure, this is a bona fide grand vin.(NM)
(from a 2.67 ha parcel situated entirely in terres rouges soil in the south-west portion of the vineyard). An extract of black cherry nose is interwoven with notes of earth, violet, spice and plum liqueur scents. The very dense and serious yet vibrant and relatively refined big-bodied flavors brim with dry extract that serves to mostly buffer the powerful and very firm tannic spine on the once again naturally sweet, sappy and massively long finish. As is often the case with the de Vogüé Bonnes Mares, this is a ‘buy and forget you own it’ wine. 2035+
The 2015 Bonnes-Mares from the domaine is truly exceptional. The bouquet delivers almost bottomless depth in its sappy blend of black cherries, sweet blackberries, cocoa, a complex base of soil, woodsmoke, gamnebire3d, violets and cedar wood. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and very vibrant in personality, with a great core, ripe, seamless tannins and outstanding focus and grip on the very long, youthfully complex and vibrant finish. Despite its beautiful depth of sappy fruit here, this is a very minerally wine as well and it is going to be stellar in the fullness of time. 2027-2080.
Bright ruby-red. Classic aromas of blueberry, boysenberry, menthol and licorice complicated by soil and spice notes and a sexy carnal quality. Then densely packed but very tightly wound and juicy, showing distinctly darker fruit flavors than the Premier Cru but also terrific energy and balance. Finishes vibrant and long, with firm but ripe tannins, a suggestion of bitter chocolate, and a crunchy quality to its blueberry and black cherry flavors. As rich as this wine is, it's not thick or overripe. (ST)
