Burghound Author: Allen Meadows Issue: Issue 29

Very ripe, nicely complex, ever-so-slightly roasted fruit that displays a subtle floral note leads to round, medium-bodied, nicely nuanced and earthy flavors of obvious breed and fine finishing length. This is not an especially big wine by the standards of Roumier and his Bonnes Mares but it manages to deliver good elegance for the vintage and while it is approaching its peak, it could use another few years in the cellar first. A fine if not great effort that is developing a slight herbal note on the discreetly toasty finish. Consistent notes.

International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 89

Good full red. Aromatic nose of rose petal, cocoa bean and peony. Large-scaled, rich and mouthfilling; lush and seamless. Has the uncanny sweetness of the vintage best bottles. An herbal nuance contributes complexity. Finishes quite long and ripely tannic. This should age well.

Wine Advocate Author: Pierre Rovani Issue: 125

The 1997 Bonnes Mares is medium to dark ruby-colored, and offers beguiling aromas of red and black fruits, stones, and earth. It explodes on the palate, with super-expressive candied red cherries, as well as licorice and road tar flavors. This rich, dense, gorgeously structured, powerful, and expansive wine is masculine and broad-shouldered, yet opulent and hedonistic. Medium to full-bodied, complex, and harmonious, it should be at its peak of drinkability between 2000-2010.

Vertical Tasting of 18 Roumier Bonnes Mares from Steven Tanzers Cellar with Steve, sponsored by Acker Merrill at Toqueville. Competely ripe and drinkable now. Typical 97, more forward, slightly sweeter. not with the grace and elegance of its siblings, but delightful all the same
