Why I like this wine

A beautiful ruby colour when young and then tile red with age, this full-bodied Bonnes-Mares is rich, fleshy and has great sustain. Its structure is clearly robust. More vigorous than flowery, it is also a little wild. Roundness and elegance merge under the same, delicately tannic power. The aromas evoke violet, humus and undergrowth.
