Written Notes

Monbousquet (St.Emilion) - tight and dense, loads of fruit and tannin kept in fine balance, fine structure and comlexity, firm finish. 91-92p.
  • 91p
Deep colour. Intense liquorice dark plum ginger aromas. Sweet supple inky textures wine with sweet ripe dark berry fruits, ginger oak nuances and plentiful chocolaty textures. Oak sweet finish. Alcohol kicks out markedly at the finish. Hot. 88 points
  • 88p
Rich and concentrated mixture of dark plum and red berries. There was hint of oak at the back of the palate. Quite powerful in body and tannin but smooth and round. Fresh and charming wine. A good vintage for Monbousquet that can age and drink young. 94
