Ships Free! Gerard Perse aquired Chateau Monbousquet in 1998. Working with famed enologist, Michel Rolland, he has transformed the wines from this Chateau as well as those of the other Chateaux he’s purchased (Pavie, Pavie-Decesse, Bellevue Mondotte), from serviceably to profund. Here’s what Robert Parker said about about him: “What can one say about the remarkable efforts Gerard Perse has produced at his home property, Monbousquet, as well as his more recent acquisitions of Pavie, Pavie-Decesse, and La Clusiere? He has provoked anger, jealousy, and envy among the Bordeaux cognoscenti, but the bottom line is that his wines are brilliant. He spares no expense or effort to turn out great clarets from properties that were perennial underachievers." Here's what he said about the 1999 Monbousquet: "Every Monbousquet produced under the Perse regime to date has been super. The 1999 is made from 60% Merlot and the remainder Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, it is one of the few 1999 blockbusters. A sexy, compellingly rich, magnetic effort, this black beauty exhibits thrilling notes of plums, blackberry fruit, cherry liqueur, toast, licorice, and spice. Extraordinarily nuanced, with medium to full body, no hard edges, well-integrated, sweet tannin, and a finish that lasts for 40+ seconds, this compelling effort is atypical for the vintage. Yields were a low 30 hectoliters per hectare. Some of the Merlot was harvested at a whopping 14.5% natural alcohol. Geez! Anticipated maturity: 2002-2018.” This item excluded from XTYPAK and any other discounts or offers beyond the 15% case discount.
Good medium ruby. Highly nuanced, expressive nose of raspberry, roasted meat, charred oak, minerals and coffee. Lush, chewy and sweet, with impressive thickness of texture... Stephen Tanzer's IWC. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1999 Monbousquet 750ml
Schwarz mit rubinrotem Rand. Brombeere, Cassis, schwarze Kirsche, Walderdbeere, auch Himbeere, Rosenblätter und Veilchen. Voluminöser, tanninreicher, fetter und zugleich feiner und rassiger Wein.
Modern pumped-up wine...Very smoky almost gamy aromas with dried red fruits. Medium- to full-bodied with chewy tannins and an astringent finish. Slightly overextracted but impressive... Wine Spectator.

The dense ruby/purple-colored 1999 Monbousquet exhibits a port-like bouquet of super-ripe black cherry and black currant fruit intermixed with scents of coffee, tobacco, and vanilla. Tipping the scales at a whopping 14% alcohol (extremely high for Bordeaux), this wine, which spends 18 months in 100% new oak and is bottled unfined and unfiltered, is a blend of 60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc, and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. It was cropped at an amazingly low 30 hectoliters per hectare. It possesses an amazing texture, a mid-palate that you could get lost in, and a sensational 40-45 second finish. The exotic aromas, incredible texture, and abundant fruit are reminiscent of Pomerol's renowned micro-cuvee, Le Pin. The 1999 is even better from bottle than it was from cask. It is a remarkable effort for the vintage, Anticipated maturity: 2005-2017.
