Decanter: 60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. Ripe with luscious fruit – soft and seductive on the palate. Tight tannic finish but early accessibility. Perhaps misses a little tension. 89 Points

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Wine Spectator: Wine Spectator - "Dark and winey, with a large-scale core of cassis, plum and currant fruit, inlaid with dense yet polished structure. A gorgeous apple wood backdrop through the finish gives this a bit of muscle to match the fruit. Barrel Sample: 93-96 points"
Ratings
The Wine Advocate - "The 2015 Monbousquet is a blend of 60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon matured in 70% new oak. It has a ripe and sexy bouquet with black cherries, black olive and blueberry. The oak is nicely integrated here. The palate is full-bodied with saturated tannin, supple in the mouth, easy-going in some ways with a smooth rounded finish of licorice-tinged black fruit mixed with cassis and a hint of cedar, more evident on a second sample I tasted outside the ch√Ęteau. What it needs is just more finesse and delineation but it should turn out nicely once in bottle. Barrel Sample: 90-92 points"
Awards
Wine Enthusiast - "This wine is ripe and impressive, with its dark tannins and powerful structure. With light acidity, it is all about richness and a firm character that shows density as well as ripe fruits. Barrel Sample: 92-94 points"

Other Notes
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.
