Brooding and sophisticated, the Bonnes-Mares layers its red and black fruits over a foundation of smoky minerals, espresso, dark chocolate, potpourri, and warm baking spices. Muscular and refined, this wine swaddles the palate with velvety tannins, and kisses it with a sweet inner perfume. Beautifully textured, this Bonnes-Mares shows remarkable balance.
