About

92-95

"OUTSTANDING. An appealingly floral nose features notes of violets along with cool and pure earthy plum and red berry fruit aromas that are liberally laced with wet stone nuances. The taut and muscular broad-scaled and concentrated flavors are precise, intense and explosively long on the focused, dusty and stunningly persistent finish that is still quite youthfully austere. Note well that this perfectly well-balanced and very firm effort will also require extended cellar time."

93+ Stephen Tanzer - Vinous Media

"Bright medium red. Vibrant aromas of blueberry, wild herbs and pepper. Intensely flavored, dense and light on its feet; at once smooth and energetic, offering an uncanny combination of black fruit lift and deeper-pitched soil tones. Remarkably seamless, even round, for a young Bonnes-Mares but with the structure and balance to reward eight to ten years of cellaring. Consistent from start to finish."
