A soft and very silky Monbousquet with wonderfully caressing texture. Full body. Delicious crushed cherries and berries. Beautiful length, too. Hard not to drink now. Better after 2024.

This classic, elegant vintage plays fabulously well at this address. Beautiful blackcurrants, cassis, gravelly minerality, and chocolate all emerge from this full-bodied Saint-Emilion that has another level of purity and elegance over every other vintage I’ve tasted. It delivers loads of pleasure today and will do the same in 15 years as well. Bravo!

A Lapsang souchong tea swirls through the finish. Best from 2022 through 2035. — J.M.

Full-bodied with a very compelling minerally restraint on the palate, it has a great intensity of red and black fruits with plush tannins and a lively lift to the finish. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown

The 2016 Monbousquet is gorgeous. Rich, ample and super-expressive, the 2016 offers terrific resonance and textural depth. Super-ripe dark cherry, plum, mocha, espresso and spice abound.

Super-ripe dark cherry, plum, mocha, espresso and spice abound. The 2016 has all the richness that has always showed from barrel, but with an extra kick of freshness and aromatic lift. The 2016 has certainly come together beautifully over the course of its aging. There is a lot to like in this voluptuous, immediate Saint-Émilion. -- Antonio Galloni

This full, generous wine has tannins that integrate well with the rich berry fruits. There is a touch of smokiness as well as spice, toast and a final velvet texture. Drink this accessible wine from 2023. ROGER VOSS
