Antonio Galloni's Vinous.com: 92-94/100. (from the Morey side; 20% vendange entier; 13% natural alcohol, chaptalized to 13.3%): Saturated medium red. Highly perfumed aromas of huckleberry, blackberry, licorice, violet and menthol. Quite powerful and backward on the palate, with classically dry dark berry flavors accented by youthfully aggressive herb, spice and pepper notes. Very uncompromising Bonnes-Mares with no easy sweetness. Finishes stony and very long, with tannins that will probably require at least a decade of patience. This reminded me of a classic Bonnes-Mares from the old days.
Burghound.com: 92-94/100. (from the Morey side). A beautifully complex, elegant and gorgeously pure nose offers up notes of
violet, plum and a broad range of spice elements that are trimmed in just enough wood to notice. Just as with the Bèze there
is seriously good richness to the muscular and voluminous big-bodied flavors that brim with palate coating dry extract that
does a good job of largely buffering the very firm tannic spine. This sleekly constructed effort is excellent and should amply
reward extended cellaring. 2027+
