The 2011 Bonnes-Mares is dark, powerful and racy. Some of the typical Bonnes-Mares structure is tempered in this vintage, making the wine a little more accessible than it usually is. Menthol, licorice, dried herbs, smoke and dark stone fruits blossom in a dark, virile Burgundy that should provide thrilling drinking for the next 30 years or so. Although I don't think the 2011 will take as long as most vintages to blossom, it will need at least a decade to start to open up. A recent bottle of the 1993 was stratospheric and showed no signs whatsoever of fading.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: 93 points

The 2011 Bonnes-Mares Grand Cru has a vivacious, ripe, blackberry and blueberry- scented bouquet with impressive delineation and mineralite. The palate is medium-bodied with a supple opening, exhibiting superior concentration and suppleness compared to the Clos Saint Denis or Clos de la Roche and seems to revel in the vintage better. It does not quite have the length of a tiptop Bonnes-Mares, but it should age well in the context of the vintage. Drink 2015-2025.
