($190-$413) Good deep red. Wild, superripe aromas of blackberry liqueur, mocha, milk chocolate and faded rose. Sweet, dense and thick, but with very good lift to its flavors of dark berries, wild herbs and game. This impressively fat, large-scaled grand cru is as chewy as a solid. Finishes very long and lush, with thoroughly ripe tannins. Those who taste with their mouth alone will rate this massive wine even higher than I did; I wanted a bit more in the way of treble notes. But this one may yet explode with seven or eight years of cellaring.

The Groffier 2005 Bonnes Mares smells of black raspberry and wild blueberry laced with sage and a hint of game, offers a rather Musigny-like combination of inner-mouth florality and refinement on the palate, and finishes with pure, sweet fruit, even silkier in texture and nearly as bright as the Hauts Doix, not to mention more intense and with a tactile finishing minerality, fineness of tannins and sheer length that (as well they should) go beyond the Premier Cru wines.
