Description

By Wine Enthusiast in 2013 (WE92-94)

Barrel sample. The only Grand Cru Classé on the sandy plain of Saint-Emilion, Monbousquet is producing great wines thanks to huge investments by owner Gerard Perse. This Merlot-dominated blend is ripe, spicy, rich and open.

By Robert Parker in 2013 (RP90-92)

The 2012 reveals lots of Asian spice characteristics interwoven with Christmas fruitcake, black cherries, black currants, toasty oak and a touch of vanillin. About 40-50% new oak is used during the wine’s upbringing, but like most of the Gerard Perse offerings, it has an extended maceration cuvaison of 40-60 days. The results include lots of fruit, ripe tannin and a round, generous style. This 2012 should drink nicely for 10-12 years.This is a strong effort from this consistent producer, whose estate is situated on the wrong side of the road separating the appellation of St.-Emilion. Flamboyant and exuberant, Monbousquet-s 2012 is a blend of 70% Merlot and the rest mostly Cabernet Franc with a touch of Cabernet Sauvignon
