"Very ripe and dense raspberry nose, beguiling but not fully expressive. Assertive attack, but the tannins soon make themselves felt on the mid-palate, giving a slight grippiness that is positive in a young wine and invigorating. The balance is splendid, with impeccable acidity giving persistence and vigor. Very long." Stephen Brook, The World of Fine Wine, Issue 59

"A notably ripe nose is composed by notes of black cherry liqueur, violet and warm earth. There is good detail to the powerful and concentrated flavors that possess plenty of dry extract on the velvety yet very firm and mildly austere finale. This is a classic Bonnes Mares that is very clearly built-to-age and is going to need it." Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, Issue 69

"The 2015 Bonnes Mares Grand Cru is excellent, opening in the glass with notes of peony, ripe cherries, briary fruits, potpourri, dark chocolate and coniferous forest floor—more wild in profile than Mugnier's other wines from Chambolle. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, concentrated and deep, with impressive power and a long finish. This is quite a dramatic Bonnes Mares by Mugnier's standards, and the only criticism one could make is that it doesn't possess the ineffable sense of completeness that distinguishes his Amoureuses and Musigny. Discussing his Bonnes Mares, Mugnier notes that half of the vineyard was replanted in 1988 and a quarter in 1980. As these young vines reach age 30, he observes, they have become "more Chambolle in character."" William Kelley, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #236

"Sturdy nose. Quite a bit of carbon dioxide in here but it makes for an absolutely gorgeous wine. Lots of freshness. Very beautiful. Definitely not fruit juice! Very special energy. Intense and tense. More like Chambolle, he thinks." JancisRobinson.com
