There is superb aromatic density here as aromas of blueberries, earth and animale notes blend perfectly with soaring black pinot fruit and big, robust, intense, sturdy yet refined flavors underpinned by firm but ripe structure. This is much bigger than the 1er with more intensity but not the sheer breadth of complexity. Structured and rather dry at the moment but this just seems to ooze freshly crushed black fruit sap everywhere and the tannins are completely buried. This is also slightly better than it was when I last reviewed it.

($235) Medium red. High-toned, pure aromas of cherry liqueur, blueberry, mocha, mace and mint. Sweet, fat, spicy and explosively rich, with an impression of strong acids deriving from the wine's pervasive minerality. Urgent flavor of crushed blueberry mounts slowly and lingers long on the ripely tannic finish. Very deep and very suave.

Blackberries and a myriad of spices are found in the nose of the light to medium-bodied 2001 Bonnes Mares. Satin-textured and broad shouldered on the attack, this wine reveals outstanding depth to its blackberry and blueberry-flavored character. Its dark fruit-laden finish displays a firm, woody tannin-laced characteristic.

Well structured; needs way more time.
