Reviews for 1999 Comte de Vogue Bonnes Mares

IWC 93
Stephen Tanzer's IWC - Stephen Tanzer's IWC, April 2002
Deep ruby-red. Deep dark aromas of blueberry violet flowers coffee and mocha. Superrich and chocolatey with lovely sweetness but currently quite closed. Has more stuffing for its tannins than the Chambolle premier cru... Deep ruby-red. Deep dark aromas of blueberry violet flowers coffee and mocha. Superrich and chocolatey with lovely sweetness but currently quite closed. Has more stuffing for its tannins than the Chambolle premier cru. Finishes firm but ripe and long. 93(+?) points

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. - Neal Martin

Lovely and seriously structured. Full-bodied and rich with some wonderfully soft tannins and ripe fruit. Shows plum prune and blackberries with some mineral creeping in on the finish. Needs cellaring so the oak can... Lovely and seriously structured. Full-bodied and rich with some wonderfully soft tannins and ripe fruit. Shows plum prune and blackberries with some mineral creeping in on the finish. Needs cellaring so the oak can integrate with the wine. Best from 2003 through 2010. -PM
