Bonnes Mares 2012 Lucien Le Moine
|Brand||Lucien Le Moine|
The 2012 Bonnes-Mares Grand Cru has a wonderful bouquet with bright red and black fruit, superb mineralite and freshness. The palate is precise and focused with great harmony and depth, leading to a passionate, rounded, sensual finish with an abiding sense of symmetry that I hope will be translated once in bottle.
A cool and much more restrained nose is comprised of aromas of red currant, essence of cherry and plenty of spice nuances. There is first-rate purity to the muscular and vibrant medium weight plus flavors that exude a very fine minerality that adds lift to the very firm but not hard or rustic finish. This is also built for long-term aging and the balance is impeccable.
