Tasting Notes

Score: 92Robert Parker, Bordeaux Book (4), December 2003

Although similar to the 1996, the 1995's fruit is more accessible, and while the tannin is elevated, it is buffered by lower acidity, as well as more glycerin and fat. The 1995 offers an opaque purple color and a glorious nose of new oak, spice, and abundant black fruits. This full-bodied, super-extracted, multi-layered wine must be tasted to be believed_especially for readers who remember Monbousquet as the soft, innocuous, commerciallly-styled St-Emilion it was for many decades. The 1995 has more accessibility than its blockbuster younger sibling, but it still requires 4-5 years of cellaring.

Score: 92Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (115), February 1998
