A classic Monbousquet, the dense ruby/purple-tinged 2011 possesses abundant blueberry and raspberry fruit intermixed with hints of espresso roast and minerals. Composed of 60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, it admirably displays the heights a brilliant winemaking team with an unwavering commitment to excellence can achieve from one of the less prestigious terroirs of St.-Emilion. This beauty should provide plenty of pleasure over the next 8-10 years. Wine Advocate.April, 2014

There is patently a lot of juicy ripe black fruit on the Monbousquet 2011 with well-integrated oak and a sorbet like freshness. In the background there are touches of exotic aromas such as fig and over-ripe oranges. The palate is grippy and tannic on the entry. This is a more masculine Monbousquet with quite a firm, gritty tannic finish, which might be because of the fog that descended at the moment I tasted the wine. There is just a little dryness on the finish at the moment. Neal Martin, eRobertParker.com

A closed and silky wine with blueberry and spices with hints of toasted oak. Full-bodied with firm tannins and a long finish. Slightly hollow mid-palate. jamessuckling.com

Offers sweet linzer torte and loganberry fruit, with good underlying zip and well-embedded spice and anise notes. A clearly ripe style, but with nice focus. Very solid. James Molesworth, WineSpectator.com

This wine offers an aromatic nose with violets and hint of plums. The texture is soft, succulent and supple. There is a minerality in the backbone that provides grip for the ripe blackberry flavours found in this wine. Silky and well balanced without being extracted and too ripe. Very long length - a wine that will mature well. AsianPalate.com
