Roumier Bonnes Mares Vertical (Bouley): Highly expressive and floral bouquet of orange and red roses and sweet red cherries. Dense and rich on the palate with some herbal development. Beautiful, nice long finish. Cant get away from the roses.
The '06 continues to grow on me. This wine has put on weight and yet also started to open up aromatically in the last two years. Ripe red fruit and an overtly hard and tannic finish which has just begun to soften
Dark ruby. Attractive but still very primary nose of raspberry, cranberry, and violet. Similar red berry, floral, and mineral flavors on the palat with some spice on the finish. Classic Bonnes Mares construction: dense and chewy, muscular and tannic. The 2006 will need another 5+ years to mellow and develop some nuance. Drink starting 2020.
