Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions

96 VM / 93-95 WA / 92-94 BH / 97 WS

Deep, bright medium red. Knockout nose combines dark raspberry, clove, licorice, white pepper, minerals and earth. Conveys incredible inner-mouth lift considering its thickness of texture and spicy intensity. Really spreads out to saturate the palate. Saline, superconcentrated, pungently mineral wine with a firm tannic spine, integrated acidity and extraordinary rising length and solidity. This is almost painful today. A great Bonnes-Mares: in the end, Mounir Saouma blended his lots from the Chambolle (two-thirds) and Morey (one-third) sides of the cru. Stephen Tanzer - Vinous Media

The 2014 Bonnes-Mares Grand Cru, a blend of the north and south parts of the vineyard (here blended together) has a plush redcurrant, cranberry and strawberry scented bouquet with fine delineation. The palate is crisp and taut with red cherries and wild strawberry, steely and focused with a touch of white pepper on the long finish. This is one of the best reds from Lucien Le Moine in 2014, not a flamboyant Bonnes-Mares, but correct and blue-blooded. Neal Martin

Firm reduction. There is outstanding volume and vibrancy to the beautifully delineated broad-shouldered flavors that possess excellent focus on the serious, taut, dusty and moderately austere finale that offers fine complexity and persistence. Once again, patience absolutely required. Allen Meadows

An expressive, cherry- and raspberry-flavored red, wrapped in a layer of smoke, vanilla and toasted spice. Intense, with assertive tannins, but the elements come together on the expansive finish. Firm now, gaining suppleness with air and showing excellent potential. Best from 2022 through 2045. 41 cases imported.
