Monbousquet 2005, 750mL (WA95) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Monbousquet

750mL

Vintage: 2005
Region: France--Bordeaux
Appellation: St. Emilion

WA95
Rated 95 points by Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `From a less than noble terroir in Saint-Sulpice de Faleyrens, Gerard Perse has accomplished miraculous things at Monbousquet. Prior to his acquisition of this property in the mid-nineties, this wine tasted like watered-down Beaujolais, but Perse has turned it into one of the more stunning, modern-styled wines of Bordeaux. A blend of approximately two-thirds Merlot, one-third Cabernet Franc and 8-10% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2005 exhibits plenty of toasty oak, roasted herb, meat juice, blackberry, cherry, and spice characteristics along with a touch of incense. Full-bodied and opulent, with an atypically rigid structure, this is a remarkable achievement for such a humble terroir. It admirably reflects Gerard Perse`s obsessive commitment to excellence. Look for this 2005 to hit its stride in 7-8 years, and last for 15-20.`
