Bonnes-Mares Grand Cru
The 2018 Bonnes Mares Grand Cru is a wild, powerful wine. Dried herbs, chalk, mint, white pepper and dried flowers give the 2018 its distinctive aromatic profile. Translucent and classically austere, the Bonnes Mares is another wine in this range that is not ready yet to show all its cards. It will be interesting to see how the 2018 develops in bottle and if more fruit emerges with time. Overall, this feels a bit light for Bonnes Mares.
