"The 2014 Monbousquet is wonderfully showy, radiant and seductive, with striking purity in its fruit and fabulous overall balance. Raspberry jam, white flowers, cinnamon and pomegranate are bold and racy in the glass. The 2014 is opulent and quite forward, but never heavy in any way. Above all else, it is the wine's exquisite balance that speaks today. The blend is 60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon."

The Château Monbouquet 2014 is a blend of 60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon cropped at 35 hectoliters per hectare, matured in 60% new oak and the remainder one-year old barrels. The alcohol comes in at a modest 12.86%. The nose is very backward at the moment with tarry black fruit mixed with cedar reluctantly emerging with aeration. The palate is chewy on the entry but it softens towards the middle with light tannin and a nicely balanced on the finish. Once the aromas begin to gain a little chutzpah, this will be a fine, more classically inspired Monbousquet compared to recent vintages. eRobertParker.com.April, 2015

This is beautiful and juicy with refined tannins, berries, earth and spices. Hints of walnut. Medium to full body. Lovely. James Suckling. April, 2015.

A saturated version, with plum, cassis and cherry flavors that drape themselves over the dense but velvety structure. The long, apple wood-infused finish shows some surprising heft for the vintage.—J.M. Wine Spectator, April 2015.
