"Impressive." Wine Spectator

In stock!

This is not a pre-sale.

We have a limited amount of the 2015 Chateau Monbousquet, the #16 Wine Spectator Top 100 wine of 2018.

"A 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. Wine Spectator

"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." Wine Advocate

"Beautifully ripe, full-bodied, opulent, and undeniably hedonistic, it's loaded with notions of blackcurrants, licorice, dried herbs, chocolate and earth, with just subtle background oak. Despite all the upfront fruit and charm, it's balanced, has a stacked mid-palate, and considerable elegance. " Jeb Dunnuck

Decant now or cellar for up to 20 years. You will thank yourself for adding this wine to your collection.

95 / 100

"A 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 2032 through 2040."
