Louis Jadot Bonnes Mares 2002
"...explodes from the glass with stunning aromas of candied blueberries, rocks, and red cherries...Its velvety waves of sensual red and black fruits are interspersed with nuanced notes of spices, mocha, flowers, and minerals. While enormously powerful and ripe, it magically retains its freshness and sports an ethereal quality that is difficult to put into words...97-99." WA 6/04.
External Reviews for Louis Jadot Bonnes Mares
Always one of Jadot's best wines and the '02 is no exception with a deft touch of oak highlighting the remarkably elegant, intense, rich and forward red and black fruit nose that is decidedly less austere than usual merging seamlessly into full-bodied, robust, well structured flavors that feature impressive depth and this finishes with absolutely knockout length. There is a subtle touch of oak on the finish but the underlying material is so good that it shouldn't be an issue with a few more years of bottle age. In short, this is extremely impressive but will require ample patience.
