International Wine Cellar | Rating: 92Good deep youthful red. Quintessential briary Bonnes-Mares aromas of raspberry, roasted currant, mocha and menthol. Penetrating flavors of black cherry, flowers and mint; insinuating, ripe acids give the wine terrific verve and lift. Finishes long, vibrant and youthful, with firm but round tannins. Quite rich but not as concentrated or long as the '96. |The crop size was down due to mildew. The aromas remind me of red Burgundies from 1953.|Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: September/October 2002
Wine Advocate | Rating: 90The outstanding Bonnes Mares is more tannic than the Clos St.-Denis, but not as concentrated or supple as the Chambolle-Musigny Les Amoureuses. This well-made wine offers good sweetness and medium body, but it is not as impressive as some of the previous vintages, particularly the 1990. Give it 5-6 years of cellaring and drink it over the following 15.Author: Robert Parker
