Winemaker Notes

Dark violet, the reflections are black and bright. The robe is thick and generous. The flavors are of juicy, slightly sun-baked black fruit. The aromas range from mocha to toast, characteristic of these rich and powerful wines. The mouth is opulent with smooth, firm, tannins, still young and full of promise. A persistent and long finish, the sign of a beautiful vintage. The aromatic range will unveil itself within the next 5 years, but we will have to wait a decade to find out fully. Let us be patient.

RP 95
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
From a less than noble terroir in Saint-Sulpice de Faleyrens, Gerard Perse has accomplished miraculous things at Monbousquet. Prior to his acquisition of this property in the mid-nineties, this wine tasted like watered-down Beaujolais, but Perse has turned it into one of the more stunning, modern-styled wines of Bordeaux. A blend of approximately two-thirds Merlot, one-third Cabernet Franc and 8-10% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2005 exhibits plenty of toasty oak, roasted herb, meat juice, blackberry, cherry, and spice characteristics along with a touch of incense. Full-bodied and opulent, with an atypically rigid structure, this is a remarkable achievement for such a humble terroir. It admirably reflects Gerard Perse’s obsessive commitment to excellence. Look for this 2005 to hit its stride in 7-8 years, and last for 15-20.

Wine Spectator
Shows beautiful aromas of crushed blackberry, currant and sultana. Full-bodied, with superfine tannins and a long, caressing finish. Balanced and beautiful. Best after 2012.

Chateau Monbousquet Chateau Monbousquet  Winery Image
Chateau Monbousquet's origin goes back to 1540. The chateau has changed hands many times throughout the year, but there were two very significant periods in its history. From 1682 to 1826, Monbousquet was owned by the De Carles family. The chateau itself was built in 1779, and its fame grew in the 19th Century, under the short ownership of Count de Vassal-Monviel. The Count owned the estate from 1858 until 1877, enlarging the vineyard to its current size and significantly increasing production.

In 1993, Gerard Perse 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. Located 500 meters south of Saint-Emilion, the wines had ranked, for many years before Perse's time, somewhere in the middle ranges for Saint-Emilion wines. After over a decade of ownership, Monbousquet has become one of the region's leading wines.
