Bonnes Mares, Domaine de la Vougeraie 2016

Tasting Notes

The 2016 Bonnes-Mares Grand Cru sports a lot of reduction on the nose, although this fortunately blows away to reveal lovely red berry fruit mixed with violet and tobacco scents. The palate is medium-bodied with a spicy opening, slightly coarse tannins with a bit of attenuation towards the finish. Fine, if not as profound as I would have liked. Tasted blind at the 2016 Burgfest tasting. 2021-2040
