Tasting Note Wine Advocate (WA/RP) 93/100 (2007) David Schildknecht
Sweet, lightly-cooked cherry, vanilla, and brown spices on the nose of Bouchard’s 2007 Bonnes Mares leads to a veritable eruption of ripe red fruits on a palate of textural refinement and unusual energy and brightness for the vintage. Savory salinity, with citrus oil, cherry pit, and white pepper bitterness and pungency help prolong its finish. This displays the sort of vibratory intensity one associates with 2008, representing an exceptional achievement for 2007 and a wine almost certainly worth following for 12-15 years.

BH 95/100 (2007)
A serious, tight and brooding nose though aggressive swirling coaxes intensely floral, pure and elegant notes of very ripe black cherry and currant that merge into broad-shouldered and well-muscled flavors that offer excellent volume and concentration, all wrapped in an explosive and moderately austere finish. This is flat out terrific and blessed with huge amounts of dry extract. This should age extremely well but note that it is a wine for the very patient.
