Other Reviews....
Here there is no reductive funk as there is a lovely purity to the super-fresh and quite floral nose of red currants, spice and newly turned earth. There is an almost painful intensity to the highly energetic and tautly muscular broad-shouldered flavors that already offer impressive depth and sneaky good length. Despite having reasonable size and weight, this is not an especially big Bonnes Mares though it is one allied with plenty of power and punch. Drink 2036+.

Allen Meadows - Burghound

The 2019 Bonnes-Mares Grand Cru comes from two parcels and contains 100% whole-bunch fruit. That stem addition is noticeable on the nose but combines well with the broody black fruit, white pepper and wild mint aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with fine definition, nice focus and a sappy finish that lacks a little persistence and grip. Just needs to show more sophistication. Drink 2024 - 2042.

Neal Martin - Vinous

100% whole bunch vinification. Pretty pink purple, no especial depth, and doesn’t need it. Another sublime bouquet coupling the floral with the purity of clean berry fruit. Leaner and tenser than the Charmes. Excellent fruit and acid balance, the whole bunch aspect remains an integral but not too overt part of the wine. Very long.
