93-95 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

*Don't miss!* This is also impressively complex and refined aromatically as strikingly pure, complex and cool red and dark berry fruit aromas slide into detailed and intensely mineral-driven broad-shouldered flavors that coat the palate with dry extract. This is still very tight yet focused and driving on the persistent and impeccably well-balanced finish. I quite like this powerful effort that is clearly built for the long-term. (4/2013)

Bright, dark red. Pure but subdued nose offers red berries, brown spices, dried flowers, minerals and medicinal herbs. Quite backward on first pour, showing little in the way of easy sweetness, but time in the glass brought complex, soil-driven flavors of red fruits, flowers, spices and minerals. Finishes with terrific breadth and palate-dusting tannins. Boasts excellent density without weight and really shimmers on the whiplash of a finish, with notes of red licorice and menthol perfuming the aftertaste. Not an ounce of fat here. (ST)  (3/2014)

 

93 points Wine Spectator

Rich and bursting with sweet fruit, this exudes black cherry, black currant, violet and spice flavors. Firmly structured and long, with the fruit notes returning on the lingering aftertaste, accented by a touch of spice. Best from 2016 through 2028. (BS)  (5/2014)

 

91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2011 Bonnes-Mares Grand Cru, which comes from the north and south parts of the climat, has an earthy bouquet with hints of graphite infusing the mainly black fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannins, a little subdued on the mid-palate but then returning with style on the suave, cassis-tinged, poised finish. There is something a little austere about Grand Cru, though I imply that positively rather than negatively. (NM)  (8/2013)
