Robert Parker – 93
One of the finest reds in the Boillot cellar, the 2017 Bonnes Mares Grand Cru offers up lovely aromas of peonies, wild berries, spicy potpourri and espresso roast. On the palate, it’s medium to full-bodied, fine-boned and mineral, with a deep core of concentrated fruit, chalky structuring tannins and a long, sapid finish.
Vinous – 92
The 2017 Bonnes-Mares Grand Cru offers dark cherries, blackberry and light touches of blue fruit in what is a very similar bouquet to the domaine’s other Grand Crus. The palate is full-bodied with ripe tannins, perhaps showing a little more terroir expression than the other Grand Crus, with touches of white pepper and sage towards the structured finish. This is probably the best of Boillot’s Grand Crus.
Anticipated maturity: 2023-2040
