Reviews for 2011 Monbousquet Bordeaux Blend

WS 94
Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, April 2012
Offers sweet linzer torte and loganberry fruit with good underlying zip and well-embedded spice and anise notes. A clearly ripe style but with nice focus. Very solid.-J.M.

James Suckling - jamessuckling.com, April 2012
A closed and silky wine with blueberry and spices with hints of toasted oak. Full-bodied with firm tannins and a long finish. Slightly hollow mid-palate.

A classic Monbousquet, the dense ruby/purple-tinged 2011 possesses abundant blueberry and raspberry fruit intermixed with hints of espresso roast and minerals. Composed of 60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, it admirably displays the heights a brilliant winemaking team with an unwavering commitment to excellence can achieve from one of the less prestigious terroirs of St.-Emilion. This beauty should provide plenty of pleasure over the next 8-10 years. - Robert M. Parker, Jr.

From a 32-hectare estate on the St. Emilion cote just south of the town of St. Emilion. Soils are sandy clay with a significant iron component. Average vine age is 30+ years. Aged in 60% new oak. Dense opaque purple. Revealing little initial bouquet the barest hint of fruit appears with air. The palate is balanced with round densely textured black cherry fruit. With subtle tannins the deep medium to full-bodied fruit continues on toward a fine subtly firm finish. Will provide great drinking for the next two decades. From the Gerard Perse portfolio. Tasted three times.
