Reviews for 2010 Monbousquet Bordeaux Blend

Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, March 2011
This packs a lot in with very lushly textured black cherry sauce blackberry and boysenberry fruit all laced with anise graphite and fig cake notes. The very long and fleshy finish is not shy at all. -J.M.

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+

More restrained and less exuberant and flamboyant than usual it exhibits a dense ruby/purple hue along with plenty of sweet black raspberry and black cherry fruit intermixed with tell-tale toasty oaky notes as well as a hint of espresso roast. This medium to full-bodied ripe St.-Emilion will be ideal for drinking in its first 10-12 years of life.

I love the finish on this. It's different in style for this estate with bright cherries and berries and chocolate. Long and refined. Very pretty. All in the finish.

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.
