2001 Monbousquet, St-Emilion

SKU #1008869 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 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. (RP) Inner quote mark (6/2004)

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Deep red-ruby. Expressive, in-your-face aromas of black raspberry, plum, game, leather and chocolate. Sweet and sexy on the palate, with complex flavors of plum, raspberry, tobacco, minerals, leather and chocolate. Finishes with sweet tannins and excellent length. This seems remarkably open and accessible today but has solid underlying structure for mid-term aging. (ST) Inner quote mark (6/2004)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Great depth of colour. Good racy acidity and masses of luscious fruit – not integrated yet but quite promising. Still pretty tannic and not a heavyweight. In the end it may look slightly skinny in the air but good wine for the ground. (JR) Inner quote mark (8/2008)

K&L Notes

90 points Neal Martin in Wine Advocate: "I cannot help falling for the palate that is very ripe with iodine on the entry with cherry, soy and spice. Dense and oaky on the dark chocolate-tinged finish...this has undeniable charm." (10/2007)
