The 2015 Monbousquet is dark and heavily extracted, with plenty of dark fruit and torrefaction notes. There is plenty of depth in the glass, but little freshness, while the overall expression is noticeably one-dimensional, especially next to the other wines in Gerard Perse's range.

The 2015 Monbousquet is a blend of 60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon matured in 70% new oak. It has a ripe and sexy bouquet with black cherries, black olive and blueberry. The oak is nicely integrated here. The palate is full-bodied with saturated tannin, supple in the mouth, easy-going in some ways with a smooth rounded finish of licorice-tinged black fruit mixed with cassis and a hint of cedar, more evident on a second sample I tasted outside the château. What it needs is just more finesse and delineation but it should turn out nicely once in bottle. Apr 2016, www.eRobertParker.com, Drink: 2019-2032

Tight and structured with blackberry and blueberry character. Hints of almonds and spice. Full and savory. Velvety tannins. Mar 2016, www.JamesSuckling.com

Dark and winey, with a large-scale core of cassis, plum and currant fruit, inlaid with dense yet polished structure. A gorgeous apple wood backdrop through the finish gives this a bit of muscle to match the fruit. Mar 2016, James Molesworth, www.WineSpectator.com

Exceptionally dark crimson. Deep-flavoured and mellow. Like fermented liqueur chocolates. Very tight on the end. A bit tough and charred on the end. Not my style - full marks for effort if not for achievement. Apr 2016, www.JancisRobinson.com, Drink: 2026-2040

Very much in the Gérard Perse/Michel Rolland style, this is a plush, oaky, coffee and chocolate-scented red that wouldn’t be out of place in the warmer bits of the Napa Valley. Firm tannins, rich, cakey, figgy flavours and just enough acidity for balance. Apr 2016, www.timatkin.com, Drink: 2020-2030
