 Markus Del Monego MW / Best Sommelier in the World 1998, MW (Germany)  tasted  Chateau Monbousquet 2013  ( Château Monbousquet )

"Dark purple red with violet hue and almost black core. Well structured nose with distinct spicyness, liquorice and hints of violets, elegant toasting. On the palate well structured with good length but firm tannins, shows a certain potential."
