Louis Jadot Bonnes Mares 2019
The 2020 Bonnes-Mares Grand Cru is very pure and harmonious on the nose with plush black cherry and cassis fruit, well-integrated oak and a floral aspect that becomes more prominent with time. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, taut and fresh, lightly spiced with quite a vivacious, mineral-driven finish that retains superb definition. This is very impressive and bloomin' delicious (already!)
An intense, firmly structured red, revealing rich, succulent flavors of raspberry, cherry and rose wrapped in a cloak of toasty oak. Tightens up as this builds to a long, spice-tinged finish, while vivid acidity keeps this focused and persistent. Best from 2026 through 2045.
