The 2012 Bonnes-Mares Grand Cru has a perfumed, floral, violet-scented bouquet that translates the vagaries of the vineyard and demonstrates life-affirming vivacity. The palate is very refined with superb tannins, the oak just a little more pronounced here, but married with the succulent black fruit with just a hint of black coffee on the long, peacock's tail finish. This is exquisite: one of the best Bonnes-Mares that I have tasted in 2012. eRobertParker.com (Neal Martin)
