La Rosée de Monbousquet Rosé Blend Bordeaux Rosé Rosé 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"This packs a lot in, with very lushly textured black cherry sauce, blackberry and boysenberry fruit all laced with anise, graphite and fig cake notes. The very long and fleshy finish is not shy at all…92-95." WS 4/11 "Exhibits a dense ruby/purple hue along with plenty of sweet black raspberry and black cherry fruit intermixed with tell-tale toasty, oaky notes as well as a hint of espresso roast. This medium to full-bodied...91-93" WA 5/11

A blend 60% Merlot 30% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon cropped at 28hl/ha this has a very intense nose of dark berried fruit that could do with a little more delineation. The palate is full-bodied with grippy tensile tannins very powerful but I like the tension and mineralit

Bright ruby-red. High-toned aromas of dark berries espresso and bitter chocolate. Superconcentrated but a bit youthfully gritty with strong acidity keeping the chewy cassis licorice spicecake and bitter chocolate flavors under wraps today. Finishes with serious ripe tannins. This rather brooding wine will need at least a few years in bottle to express its personality. 91+ Stephen Tanzers IWC.

60% merlot 30% cabernet franc 10% cabernet sauvignon. From a 32 hectare vineyard in the southwest part of the appellation the vines average 40 years of age. Hand-harvested between and Oct. 6th and Oct. 19th yields were 31 hls/ha. Aged in 60% new French oak and 40% one-wine-old barrels. This vintage has an intensely aromatic nose showcasing incredible minerality as well as a sweet perfume that adds balance and complexity making for a pleasant bouquet. A big yet well structured Monbousquet

Bottled unfined and unfiltered, it exhibits notes of Christmas fruitcake, black raspberry, cedar wood and spice box and has a full-bodied, fleshy, succulent mouthfeel, sweet tannin and decent acidity along with the tell-tale purity that always seems to emerge from the Perse estates. This wine should drink beautifully for at least 12–15 or more years.
