Bonnes Mares (0.75 L)
This is also very 2018 in style with its notably ripe liqueur-like aromas of cassis, plum, violet and warm earth. There is excellent volume and a taut muscularity to the powerful broad-shouldered flavors that are blessed with copious amounts of dry extract that also serve to buffer the very firm tannic spine shaping the hugely long and youthfully austere finale. This too is a ‘buy and forget that you own it’ wine.
