My Notes: An incredibly high toned yet full nose with a bit more of a plum and violet spectrum rather than a limestone tension seen in the above wine. Spiced plum, blackberry bramble and nuances of mocha.The palate is so incredibly sumptuous, suave, silky, smooth and while it gives the impression of roundness, it remains incredibly long and driven. The tannins are so perfectly ripe. There is a core of fine structure and minerality. Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy- 96 points Rich dense dark purple. This is a voluptuous, ripe wine and when we tasted it in November, it did not seem to have the freshness necessary to maintain balance The bouquet has freshened up nicely since then – in fact November’s showing caused Pierre to pull the wine out of barrel for it to finish its elevage in a miniature stainless steel tank. Today the 2018 Bonnes Mares shows a touch of graphite, sweet ripe raspberry, pulled out of barrel earlier. Gives more tension to the finish, still some milky oak long and fine at the finish.
