Tasting Notes

Robert Parker 92

Although similar to the 1996, the 1995’s fruit is more accessible, and while the tannin is elevated, it is buffered by lower acidity, as well as more glycerin and fat. The 1995 offers an opaque purple color, and a glorious nose of new oak, spice, and abundant black fruits. This full-bodied, super-extracted, multi-layered wine must be tasted to be believed – especially for readers who remember Monbousquet as the soft, innocuous, commercially-styled St.-Emilion it was for many decades. The 1995 has more accessibility than its blockbuster younger sibling, but it still requires 4-5 years of cellaring. Anticipated maturity: 2003-2022. Monbousquet is one of the up and coming stars of St.-Emilion, as evidenced by the commitment of the relatively young new proprietor, Gerard Perse, to producing high quality wines. [23/02/1998]

Vinous 89

Saturated red-ruby. Superripe aromas of red- and blackcurrants, game and smoke, plus a strong note of toasty new oak. Silky and lush in the mouth, and already quite accessible. But not quite as sweet or suave as the ’97. Finishes with very good length, substantial dusty tannins and a note of caramel. [Stephen Tanzer, 05/01/1998]
