Bonnes Mares, Domaine Robert Groffier 2003

Tasting Notes

The nose indicates immediately how concentrated this is with a densely fruited mix of earth, subtle spice, violet and plum notes that are followed by gorgeously complex, sweet and borderline massive mocha-infused flavors underpinned by very prominent firm yet fine tannins plus solid persistence. There are hints of finishing toast and warmth but not enough to be intrusive.

Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (21), January 2006

Black chocolate, dark cherries, and blackberries make up the aromatic profile of the medium-bodied 2003 Bonnes Mares. This velvety-textured effort is crammed with blackberries, black cherries, cassis, and sappy red fruits. Concentrated, fleshy, and long in the finish, it reveals a long, seamless, spicy finish. Drink it between 2008 and 2014.
