Bonnes Mares, Louis Jadot 2019
The 2019 Bonnes-Mares Grand Cru has a floral bouquet of black and blueberry fruit infused with crushed violet and iris petal. This is completely destemmed, so it does not convey the same amplitude. The palate is medium-bodied, with light Earl Grey and ash notes tincturing the black fruit. Fine structure and focus here. Light on its feet toward the long, sustained finish. This is a superb Bonnes-Mares.

Deep and elegantly muscular, the 2019 Bonnes-Mares Grand Cru (Domaine Louis Jadot) is a layered, fleshy but tightly wound wine evocative or orange rind, rose petals, sweet berry fruit and raw cocoa. Full-bodied and concentrated, with a long, mineral finish, it will reward bottle age.

Mid crimson-purple, with a discreet bouquet that is not quite yielding its secrets. The fruit starts out plumply on the palate, though a little bit dry behind and without quite the hoped for follow through. Bonnes Mares doesn’t like the hot dry conditions. Tasted: October 2020
