Château-Monbousquet Saint Emilion 2015
|Region||France, Bordeaux, St. Emilion|
Wine SpectatorA 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 ganache-framed finish packs on weight as it moves along, yet stays defined and pure. Impressive. Best from 2022 through 2040. 9,333 cases made.
Wine EnthusiastThis wine is smooth, with a cream-chocolate texture that's rich and dense. Velvety tannins opulently balance with the superripe fruit. This is not a shy wine, everything is right out front. Drink from 2026.
Wine AdvocateBlended 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.
