Wine Advocate

94-96 Points, Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Bonnes Mares Grand Cru was 70% affected by the frost, though François explained that the north side was spared the damage. It offers slightly darker fruit on the nose compared to the Les Amoureuses: blackcurrant, tobacco, sage and in the background a touch of flint and violet petal. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grain tannin, though not quite as supple as the Les Amoureuses. I admire the symmetry here: a detailed and linear Bonnes Mares with impressive mineralité on the finish that lingers 45 to 60 seconds after the wine has departed." 12/17

Vinous Media

90-93 Points, Stephen Tanzer, Vinous: "Briary red fruits and black cherry on the nose, along with some subtle spicy oak notes; showing less of this wine's normal blueberry and mineral aromas. Fairly smooth but tight, conveying an impression of slightly green acidity to the complex flavors of medicinal dark cherry, herbs, peony, lilac, licorice and menthol. The most tannic of these 2016s to this point and a bit lacking in give. Finishes with dark fruits and a repeating note of menthol. Hard to assess at this stage of its evolution in barrel." 1/18


90-92 Points, Burghound: "Deep ruby. Once again there is an exuberant freshness to the nose of plum, violet, peony, spice and earth aromas. There is outstanding density and power to the big-bodied and overtly muscular flavors that deliver fine complexity though the finish is somewhat drying and a bit short. This showed awkwardly today because while the tannins seem ripe they are rough and somewhat inelegant. This may very well come together but I have at least some concern about that." 1/18
