Critical AcclaimAll Vintages
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.
