Cuts a broad swath, with velvety tannins carrying raspberry coulis, plum paste and steeped red currant flavors, studded with anise, singed apple wood and fruitcake notes throughout. The long, flowing finish has a very refined structure. Shows impressive density and elegance. Best from 2016 through 2026.

Offers sweet linzer torte and loganberry fruit, with good underlying zip and well-embedded spice and anise notes. A clearly ripe style, but with nice focus. Very solid.-J.M. Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2011 Monbousquet 6000ml

A classic Monbousquet, the dense ruby/purple-tinged 2011 possesses abundant blueberry and raspberry fruit intermixed with hints of espresso roast and minerals. Composed of 60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, it admirably displays the heights a brilliant winemaking team with an unwavering commitment to excellence can achieve from one of the less prestigious terroirs of St.-Emilion. This beauty should provide plenty of pleasure over the next 8–10 years.


Winemaker's Notes:

"Tiny yields of 31 hectoliters per hectare and a harvest that occurred between September 16-22 resulted in a full-throttle 2011 Monbousquet that hit 13.9% natural alcohol. The final blend was 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. In both blind and non-blind tastings, this wine acquitted itself extremely well, placing well above many wines that cost two to three times the price. The 2011 reveals exotic notes of Asian spices, black fruits, toast, coffee bean and forest floor. Fleshy and medium to full-bodied, it is ideal for drinking over the next 10-12 years."*-Wine Advocate (91-93 points)**We will notify you on arrival Summer 2014*
