Description

Winery Notes  An intense ruby-red colour. Delicate woody aromas with notes of toast and ripe fruit. In the mouth the attack is supple and full, the tannins refined and the structure very aromatic. The red fruit comes to the fore – blackberry and cherry. Excellent concentration and a fresh finish with good aromatic return of the fruit. Grape varieties: 70 % merlot, 20 % cabernet franc, 10 % cabernet sauvignon.  Average age of the vines: 28 years

Wine Advocate – 91 Points

The home estate of Chantal and Gerard Perse, the 2001 Monbousquet (a 7,500-case blend of 60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc, and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon bottled unfined and unfiltered) is a big, flamboyant, sexy offering with a dense ruby/purple color as well as a big, sweet nose of licorice, dried herbs, smoke, black currants, and blackberries. Beautifully textured, medium to full-bodied, opulent, and forward, this is a juicy, succulent, seductive claret to drink over the next 10-12 years. RP
