Chateau Monbousquet, Saint-Emilion Grand Cru, France 2001 (1.5L)
Robert ParkerThe home estate of Chantal and Gerard Perse, the 2001 Monbousquet (a 7,500-case blend of 60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc, and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon bottled unfined and unfiltered) is a big, flamboyant, sexy offering with a dense ruby/purple color as well as a big, sweet nose of licorice, dried herbs, smoke, black currants, and blackberries. Beautifully textured, medium to full-bodied, opulent, and forward, this is a juicy, succulent, seductive claret to drink over the next 10-12 years.
Wine SpectatorAromas of sweet plums and tobacco follow through to a medium- to full-bodied palate, with chewy tannins and a medium finish. A bit austere but well made.
