Unusual, flinty nose, with notes of iron filings, spicy black fruit and new oak. The palate is dense and complete, with blueberry and a long tarry finish. Demonstrates the individuality of this great Grand Cru beautifully. Part of the New Fine Wine Parcel.
Winemaker and Estate Director Jean-Michel Laporte advised that the harvest took place between 17th and 27th September and that the assemblage was 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc. As one has come to expect of the property in recent years, they have turned out one of the successes of the commune. Whilst not a heavyweight, La Conseillante displays luscious, attractive fruit, poise and refreshing fruit. Part of the New Fine Wine Parcel.

Nicolas has always regarded Bonnes-Mares as one of his finest wines and nothing has changed in the 2008 vintage. Rich and concentrated, with a satin-like texture, this has real presence. With ripe, firm tannins and a long, complex finish, it is a terrific example of this lovely vintage. Part of the New Fine Wine Parcel.
