Bonnes Mares Georges Roumier 2013 (750ML)
93 Points, Neal Martin, Wine Advocate: "Tasted blind at the Burgfest tasting in Beaune, the 2013 Bonnes Mares Grand Cru from Christophe Roumier has a ripe redcurrant, kirsch and vanilla-tinged bouquet, high-toned but not volatile, generous if missing some mineralitÃ©. The palate is defined by its very smooth texture: seamless and so lithe in the mouth. There is impressive purity here and while you could describe this as "showy" (not an adjective that I often apply to Christophe's wines), that is meant in a positive way. There is the substance to suggest this will age with style -- a sophisticated and thoroughly enjoyable Bonnes-Mares to savor." 11/16
94+ Points, Stephen Tanzer, Vinous: "Bright medium red. Knockout high-pitched aromas of red berries, peony and orange peel. Boasts compelling subtle density and sharp definition to its taut flavors of blackberry, violet, licorice, spices and minerals. In its juicy sappiness, this is like chewing on a ripe cherry. A classic Bonnes-Mares, offering superb volume without any undue weight. And an outstanding example of what phenolically ripe fruit could make in this cool vintage." 3/16
95 Points, Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator: "This is all about finesse, with the racy profile and silky texture setting the stage for cherry, bilberry and mineral flavors. Sleek and well-integrated at this stage, yet with dense, ripe tannins that need to be absorbed. Builds to a long, ethereal aftertaste. Best from 2019 through 2035. 65 cases imported." 5/16
95 Points, Allen Meadows, Burghound: "This is quite floral with plenty of earth and assorted spice elements adding interest to the very fresh mix of green tea and red and dark berry fruit scents. There is outstanding power and concentration to the broad-shouldered flavors that possess a robust mouth feel and ample minerality, all wrapped in a moderately austere and hugely long finish. This is a big, indeed even opulent but balanced wine that is clearly built for longer-term cellaring." 01/15
95 Points, John Gilman, View From the Cellar: "In the last few vintages, Christophe has served the Bonnes-Mares ahead of the les Amoureuses in the cellars, but this year the Bonnes-Mares followed that fine premier cru. As I noted in the introduction, there is a bit more terres blanches fruit in the blend this year, due to the variations in yields between the two parcels, and perhaps the wine will end up a bit more floral as a result when it is fully mature- many years from now. The bouquet is a youthfully stellar constellation of red and black cherries, sweet dark berries, coffee bean, woodsmoke, gamebirds, a brilliantly complex base of soil and a deft touch of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, pure and still very primary, with a rock solid core, stunning soil drive on the backend, ripe tannins and a very, very long, tangy and utterly classic finish. This will be magical at its apogee." 12/14
