    March 15, 2016 - simply outstanding - a very pale yellow - fresh, lemon and light with incredible depth and length - no rush

    March 28, 2015 - quite broad and open, hints of maturity in mid palate. quite opulent and extravert.

    October 23, 2014 - Comte Georges de Vogüe and Domaine Bonneau du Martray tasted with Jean-Luc Pépin: Rich, decadent nose, decaying fruit, bitter almond, exotic fruits, white lily. Rich, heady, exotic. More obvious acidity than the ’07, not as perfectly balanced, less minerals, less integrated. But excellent length. Very nice. Drink now.

    May 12, 2014 - Light gold color. Restrained nose of flinty stone. On the palate this has none of the heft of great vintages of Bonneau du Martray, but rather comes across as more light-bodied. There's a subtle stony minerality and a hint of butter, but none of the densely-packed layers of flavors you'd normally expect from this vineyard. The acidity on this is mostly depleted, so I'd recommend drinking up soon. This is not unpleasant but doesn't reach the full potential of this Grand Cru. While it speaks highly of the BdM team that they were able to make a more-than-passable wine in such a challenging year (and one that has mostly held up for a decade, at that!), I'll be saving my 10,000 pennies to spend on more promising vintages.
