TN: 2000 Château Monbousquet (France, Bordeaux, Libournais, St. Émilion Grand Cru)

  • 2000 Château Monbousquet - France, Bordeaux, Libournais, St. Émilion Grand Cru (5/13/2011)
    A nice dark maroon purple with bricking at the edges. Nose was a pleasant mix of deep black cherry, anise, and vanilla. Body was a very nice mix of dark berries (that black cherry really strong here), toasted oak, and earthy undertones. The finish was a very nice – yet subtle – blend of sweet vanilla and mild tannic bitterness. Overall, this wine was beautiful, but suffered from the lack of “layered” or multi-dimensional characteristics we think make a truly unique experience. (92 pts.)
