About this Item

Saint-Emilion, 2000
6 (1 x 6) 750ml
This Saint-Émilion property is particularly known for its lush, ripe, modern-style of wines. Since 2006, Château Monbousquet has been ranked as a Grand Cru Classé and produces one of the best wines in the region. The property owns 32 hectares of vines with all, save for a small parcel, planted to red varieties (60% Merlot, 30% percent Cabernet Franc, and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon). The soils are mostly gravelly, which suits the high proportion of Cabernets. The grand vin and second wine are both fermented in stainless steel vats. The grand vin sees 18-24 months in new barriques and is bottled unfined and unfiltered. Monbousquet also produces a Bordeaux Blanc from its small parcel of Sauvignon Blanc, Sauvignon Gris, Sémillon and Muscadelle, which remains very rare within the appellation.

Critics Ratings

‘It is a seductive, rich, generously endowed effort revealing plenty of spice box, herb, black currant, kirsch, espresso, and toasty oak characteristics in a decidedly modern, but opulent, fleshy style. Enjoy this endearing, long, velvety-textured St.-Emilion over the next decade.’ - Robert Parker, Wine Advocate, 93/100 (Jun 2010)
