Lot #40. Comte Georges de Vogüé Bonnes-Mares 1999

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 93+ NM.
"The Bonnes-Mares Grand Cru 1999 has a quite exuberant bouquet that is very floral, like somebody shoving a bouquet of freshly picked violets under your nostrils. Looking further, one finds shaved black truffles and blackcurrant pastilles, aromatics that gain confidence and chutzpah with time. The palate is medium-bodied with black cherries and hints of tobacco. This is firm and quite rigid like many 1999s, impressive more than giving at the moment, a Bonnes-Mares that clearly requires another decade in bottle to show what it is capable of." Wine Advocate #218, Apr 2015
Provenance: The Mont Blanc Cellar
Notes: Inventory sticker on capsule.
