La Rosée de Monbousquet Rosé Blend Bordeaux Rosé Rosé 2009
"One of the most satisfying and popular wines among wine consumers in all of Bordeaux is Monbousquet...Absolutely no new oak is showing, which is unusual for this wine, but that tells you how concentrated and textured the fruit is in this vintage. Dense ruby/purple to the rim, with plenty of exotic black fruits, jammy red fruits, some truffle, roasted herbs, and incense, the wine is full-bodied, luscious, exuberant, and opulent. It will be impossible to resist in its youth...92-94" WA 04/10

60% merlot 25% cabernet franc and 15% cabernet sauvignon. Opaque core with a deep red rim. A bouquet of ripe red currant leads into an entry of black fruit and spices along with clove dark chocolate toast and limestone. Impressive concentration with a full-body and plush mouth feel. The fine structure provides a lingering finish. Enjoy today with some aeration or cellar and follow over the next decade. Should hit an early prime in 2-3 years. Pair it with grilled meats or even an array of chocolates! This voluptuous Right Bank over-achiever provides a big bang for the buck. Eddie Wolowski.
This very structured, but polished, style shows a solid coat of coffee for the large core of crushed fig, plum sauce and steeped black currant fruit. Stays dense, but has a strong graphite and iron edge buried deeply on the finish, which should let this assimilate in the cellar. Lovely mineral, sanguine edge. Beautifully built. Best from 2014 through 2030.
This exuberant, flamboyant, modern-styled St.-Emilion from Gerard and Chantal Perse is plump, succulent and irresistible in 2009. Yields were a low 28 hectoliters per hectare, and the blend was a classic combination of 70% Merlot and the rest primarily Cabernet Franc and a tiny dollop of Cabernet Sauvignon. The alcohol of 14.2% is typical for a Monbousquet. Copious notes of toasty oak, vanillin, jammy black and red fruits intermixed with notions of wood fire barbecue, roasted espresso and chocolate jump from the glass of this fleshy, exotic, impressively endowed, full-bodied, silky smooth, opulent 2009. It should drink well for 15+ years.
