#16 Wine Spectator Top 100 2018

A rich, expressive, slightly showy style, with waves of cassis, creamed raspberry and boysenberry fruit racing forth, backed by a polished yet ample structure. The long, licorice- and ganache-framed finish packs on weight as it moves along, yet stays defined and pure. Impressive. Best from 2022 through 2040. 9,333 cases made.  James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

A rich and round wine with beautiful fruit and chocolate, meat and berry character. Full body and a juicy finish. Hard not to drink now as it’s so delicious. But wait. Drink in 2020 onwards. - James Suckling

The 2015 Monbousquet is dark and powerful from the outset. Rich, layered and voluptuous in feel, it captures all the radiance of the vintage. Black cherry, plum, espresso, licorice and chocolate all flesh out in the glass. Sumptuous, racy and intense, the 2015 has a lot to offer. In this vintage, the two wines from the property are relatively close in style. I prefer to drink Monbousquet on the earlier side. - Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

Blended of 60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and aged in French oak, 70% new, the deep garnet-purple colored 2015 Monbousquet simply sings even at this youthful stage with notes of crushed black cherries, mulberries and cassis with touches of lavender, cloves, Sichuan pepper and roses. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is finely textured with wonderful elegance and impressive depth, offering up perfumed black berry layers and a long finish that whispers fragrant earth suggestions. - Lisa Perotti Brown, Wine Advocate

The 2015 Monbousquet showed much better this go-round (it was incredibly oaky last year) and is another rocking vintage for this cuvée. Beautifully ripe, full-bodied, opulent, and undeniably hedonistic, it’s loaded with notions of blackcurrants, licorice, dried herbs, chocolate and earth, with just subtle background oak. Despite all the upfront fruit and charm, it’s balanced, has a stacked mid-palate, and considerable elegance. Drink it over the coming decade or more. - Jeb Dunnuck
