A lush, modern, style, with hyperdrive on the blueberry, loganberry and boysenberry fruit flavors. Nothing gets too heady though, as there's charcoal-studded grip, smoldering coffee grinds and roasted bay leaf notes all in the background for definition and further development with cellaring. Modern, yes, but firmly grounded in its terroir. Best from 2016 through 2035. – JM

Great nose of spices, dried herbs, chocolate and coffee. Very intense nose. Full-bodied, with fabulous tannins and finesse. This is layered and rich yet very harmonious. Best Monbusquet ever. Try after 2018.

A blend 60% Merlot 30% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon cropped at 28hl/ha this has a very intense nose of dark berried fruit that could do with a little more delineation. The palate is full-bodied with grippy tensile tannins very powerful but I like the tension and mineralité coming though on the finish. It will take 8-10 years to really show its mettle but great potential. Drink 2018-2030+

Bottle unfined and unfiltered, it exhibits notes of Christmas fruitcake, black raspberry, cedar wood and spice box and has a full-bodied, fleshy, succulent mouthfeel, sweet tannin and decent acidity along with the tell-tale purity that always seems to emerge from the Perse estates. This wine should drink beautifully for at least 12-15 or more years. - Robert Parker

High-toned aromas of dark berries, espresso and bitter chocolate. Superconcentrated but a bit youthfully gritty, with strong acidity keeping the chewy cassis, licorice, spicecake and bitter chocolate flavors under wraps today. Finishes with serious ripe tannins. This rather brooding wine will need at least a few years in bottle to express its personality. 91+

From a 32 hectare vineyard in the southwest part of the appellation the vines average 40 years of age. Hand-harvested between and Oct. 6th and Oct. 19th yields were 31 hls/ha. Aged in 60% new French oak and 40% one-wine-old barrels. This vintage has an intensely aromatic nose showcasing incredible minerality as well as a sweet perfume that adds balance and complexity making for a pleasant bouquet. A big yet well structured Monbousquet the tannins are very well integrated and the finish is impressive and long. Best consumed after 2015 it will only continue to get better. Michel Rolland consults.
