Good medium red. Smoky red raspberry and strawberry fruit aromas complicated by earth and menthol. Fat, lush, full and sweet; not yet as aromatic or as precise as the Amoureuses but shows lovely texture. Long finish features smooth, fine tannins and sweet red fruits.

The star at chez Roumier in the 2000 vintage is Christophe’s Bonnes Mares. Its beguiling aromas of spiced sweet cherries lead to a medium-bodied, silky-textured character crammed with cherries, currants, and candied raspberries. Lush, generous, and pure, it is deep, concentrated, and possesses a long, expressive finish. Projected maturity: 2004-2011.
Anticipated maturity: 2004-2011
