92–94. Barrel sample. The only Grand Cru Classé on the sandy plain of Saint-Emilion, Monbousquet is producing great wines thanks to huge investments by owner Gerard Perse. This Merlot-dominated blend is ripe, spicy, rich and open.
This is Gérard Perse's home, and he has done wonders for a vineyard on the sandy plain of Saint-Emilion. With 2000, the property has shone, producing a serious, complex wine that boasts black fruits and solid tannins. The acidity and wood flavors give it shape and leave a delicious, lingering taste.
