Description

An exceptionally pretty nose combines nose of lavender, rose petal, violet, red currant and a whiff of orange pekoe tea. The big-bodied, muscular and overtly intense flavors terminate in a driving, austere and very powerful finish where the tannic spine is very prominent. This is terrific but plenty of patience will be necessary. 92-95 points Allen Meadows, Burghound

Unwinding in the glass with notes of cassis, wild plums and red berries that are complemented by nuances of peonies, heather and dark chocolate, Dujac's 2017 Bonnes-Mares Grand Cru is full-bodied, deep and incisive, its tight-knit core structured around fine but chalky tannins and tangy acids. Firm and introverted, as is so often the case, it has superb potential and will reward the patient, but readers considering purchasing this serious Bonnes-Mares should count on exercising over a decade's patience before opening bottles. 95 points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
