" Deep red. Cool, fresh aromas of black cherry, mocha, fresh herbs, licorice and violet. Very dense and thick but fine-grained, with impressive energy in the mouth. A big, broad, youthfully medicinal wine that finishes with rich, horizontal tannins and excellent length. About one-third of these vines were planted in 1902." (Apr 2004)
" A discreetly oaked nose of pepper, earth and explosive black fruits merges into incredibly dense and sappy, muscular and powerful, full-on flavors that possess superb underlying material. The old vine sap and incredible depth is most impressive, all crafted in a classic style. I very much like this as it is fabulously complex and this Bonnes Mares is highly recommended for those with the patience to wait. Drink 2012+" (Apr 2004)
