de Vogüé's 2012 Bonnes-Mares explodes from the glass with a soaring mélange of aromas and flavors. Violets, licorice, cloves and tar are some of the notes that add complexity to a core of dark blue and black-toned fruit. Explosive and insanely beautiful, the 2012 is utterly captivating. The overall sensation is like biting into a hard candy, with the crunchy outer sugar representing the firmness of the grape skin and the inner sweetness of the candy as the pure fruit. What a magnificent wine this is.

The 2012 Bonnes-Mares Grand Cru has a compelling peppermint and star anis-tinged bouquet that comes racing out of the blocks and begs you to love it. And you will. I must confess that when Frédéric asked my opinion I replied that I thought it was the Amoureuses! The palate is very well balanced with pure black fruit interlaced with mint and spices, a dash of black pepper and a gentle grip toward the finish. This is an exuberant Bonnes-Mares, which is exactly how it should be.
