Winemaker Notes

Attractive deep ruby-red colour with garnet-red highlights. The pleasant, aristocratic bouquet is already well-defined, open, and complex with hints of fruit (blackcurrant, blackberry) and spice. Fine tannic structure on the palate. This tannin is unresolved at present, and the wine has much to gain by decanting. 2002 Monbousquet is delicious with red meats such as lamb that can stand up to the tannin, as well as offal in a sauce. This vintage will be even better after 3-7 years ageing.

Critical Acclaim

WS 90
Wine Spectator
Gorgeous aromas of crushed berries, licorice, meat and cedar. Needs air. Full-bodied, with a crushed-velvet texture and loads of opulent fruit. Stays in the mouth. Juicy and exciting. Monbousquet often excels in difficult vintages and it did this year. Very well done. Best after 2008.
RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
A strong performance in a difficult vintage, the 2002 Monbousquet (60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 10% Cabernet Franc) reveals abundant aromas of espresso, sweet black currants and cherries, damp earth, compost, and new oak. It is a medium to full-bodied, fleshy offering with light tannin as well as a long finish. Drink it over the next 10-12 years.

Chateau Monbousquet, France
Chateau Monbousquet  Winery Image

More than four centuries of history define Château Monbousquet, passed through the hands of many successive owners, its production acquires since the 18th century a very good reputation in Saint-Emilion.

In 1993, Gerard Perse (owner of Château Pavie) took ownership of Monbousquet, leading to many great accomplishments and a complete renovation, including a new drainage system, a barrel ageing cellar and state-of-the-art equipment introduced. After over a decade of ownership, Monbousquet was promoted to Saint Emilion Grand Cru Classé, becoming one of the region's leading wines.

Located 500 meters from the south slopes of Saint-Emilion, Château Monbousquet benefits from an exceptional terroir diversity with a parc of 7 hectares in the heart of the property and two distinct types of soil for the vineyard. One composed of sandy-clay soils, allowing a fresh, fruity and powerful expression of the Merlot, accounting for about 60% of the blend. On the south part of the property, you’ll find more gravelly soil, therefore rather warm, allowing the significant proportion of Cabernets to provide softness and substantial structure. This complexity gives to Château Monbousquet a unique character yet proper to the terroir of the right bank.
