Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 95
Wine Spectator
A rich, expressive, slightly showy style, with waves of cassis, creamed raspberry and boysenberry fruit racing forth, backed by a polished yet ample structure. The long, licorice- and ganacheframed finish packs on weight as it moves along, yet stays defined and pure. Impressive.
JS 95
James Suckling
A rich and round wine with beautiful fruit and chocolate, meat and berry character. Full body and a juicy finish. Hard not to drink now as it’s so delicious. But wait. Drink in 2020 onwards.
WE 94
Wine Enthusiast
This wine is ripe and impressive, with its dark tannins and powerful structure. With light acidity, it is all about richness and a firm character that shows density as well as ripe fruits. Barrel Sample: 92-94 Points.
RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Blended of 60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and aged in French oak, 70% new, the deep garnet-purple colored 2015 Monbousquet simply sings even at this youthful stage with notes of crushed black cherries, mulberries and cassis with touches of lavender, cloves, Sichuan pepper and roses. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is finely textured with wonderful elegance and impressive depth, offering up perfumed black berry layers and a long finish that whispers fragrant earth suggestions.

JD 93
Jeb Dunnuck
The 2015 Monbousquet showed much better this go-round (it was incredibly oaky last year) and is another rocking vintage for this cuvée. Beautifully ripe, full-bodied, opulent, and undeniably hedonistic, it’s loaded with notions of blackcurrants, licorice, dried herbs, chocolate and earth, with just subtle background oak. Despite all the upfront fruit and charm, it’s balanced, has a stacked mid-palate, and considerable elegance. Drink it over the coming decade or more.

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.

St-Émilion Wine

Bordeaux, France

View all products

Marked by its historic fortified village—perhaps the prettiest in all of Bordeaux, the St-Émilion appellation, along with its neighboring village of Pomerol, are leaders in quality on the Right Bank of Bordeaux. These Merlot-dominant red wines (complemented by various amounts of Cabernet Franc and/or Cabernet Sauvignon) remain some of the most admired and collected wines of the world.

St-Émilion has the longest history in wine production in Bordeaux—longer than the Left Bank—dating back to an 8th century monk named Saint Émilion who became a hermit in one of the many limestone caves scattered throughout the area.

Today St-Émilion is made up of hundreds of independent farmers dedicated to the same thing: growing Merlot and Cabernet Franc (and tiny amounts of Cabernet Sauvignon). While always roughly the same blend, the wines of St-Émilion vary considerably depending on the soil upon which they are grown—and the soils do vary considerably throughout the region.

The chateaux with the highest classification (Premier Grand Cru Classés) are on gravel-rich soils or steep, clay-limestone hillsides. There are only four given the highest rank, called Premier Grand Cru Classés A (Chateau Cheval Blanc, Ausone, Angélus, Pavie) and 14 are Premier Grand Cru Classés B. Much of the rest of the vineyards in the appellation are on flatter land where the soils are a mix of gravel, sand and alluvial matter.

Great wines from St-Émilion will be deep in color, and might have characteristics of blackberry liqueur, black raspberry, licorice, chocolate, grilled meat, earth or truffles. They will be bold, layered and lush.

One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, the best of these are densely hued, fragrant, full of fruit and boast a structure that begs for cellar time. Somm Secret—Blends from Bordeaux are generally earthier compared to those from the New World, which tend to be fruit-dominant.
