"Here the oak isn't shy though it's not as intrusive as it is in some of the wines as it doesn't dominate the dark pinot fruit that is cut with plenty of earth and spice nuances plus and a hint of the sauvage. There is a seductive mouth feel to the round and velvety full-bodied flavors that brim with an abundance of dry extract while delivering superb depth and persistence on the very firmly structured finale. Once again, patience is strongly advised." Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, Issue 70

"Dark red with ruby tones. Wonderfully sweet, sappy scents of black raspberry and spicecake. Fat, creamy and full but with lovely inner-mouth tension and lift to the complex, explosive flavors of black raspberry and flowers. I find this much more vibrant and delineated than the 2015 version. The slow-building whiplash of a finish displays noble tannins and building sweetness. Like some other examples of 2016 Bonnes-Mares, this wine transcends its vintage." Stephen Tanzer, Vinous.com

"The 2016 Bonnes Mares Grand Cru is domaine bottled this year (whereas say, the Echézeaux, among others, is supplemented by purchased fruit). It has a gutsy bouquet with expressive raspberry, blueberry and crushed violet scents, though I found just a mote of VA that I suspect will disappear with bottle age. The palate is medium-bodied with a fleshy rounded opening, corpulent but well balanced with a confit-like finish. Give this three or four years in bottle before broaching."
