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.
Polished and elegant raspberry nose, with lovely purity of fruit and stylish oak. Suave and generous, with fine depth of fruit and perhaps a bit less force than some other Bonnes Mares in 2015. Very concentrated, with a tannic grip that amplifies on the mid-palate. The very long, powerful finish contradicts the impression given in the attack. Fine potential. Drinking Window 2020 - 2036 (SB)
The 2015 Bonnes-Mares Grand Cru from Louis Jadot is one of the most firmly shut down wines in the portfolio, but its potential is superb, unfurling in the glass with notes of wild berries, creamy cherry, rose hip and currant leaf. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, deep and concentrated, with outstanding purity and energy, but dominated for the time being by its ample chassis of chalky, fine-grained tannins which will take a decade or more to melt away. The rewards of patience will be considerable. 95+ points. (WK)
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)
