Yields of 28-30 hectoliters per hectare are among the lowest in St.-Emilion, which no doubt accounts for the wine's explosive richness. The final blend, 60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 10% Cabernet Franc, was bottled unfined and unfiltered after 18 months in 100% new oak, with aging on the lees.
It boasts a saturated plum/purple color in addition to an exotic bouquet of Asian spices, plum liqueur, prunes, and blackberries. Extremely full-bodied, unctuously-textured, structured, and well-defined, this spectacular achievement will drink well young, yet last for two decades. Anticipated maturity: 2003-2020.

I cannot lavish enough praise on the young, super-passionate proprietor of Monbousquet, Gérard Perse.

5000 cs produced from 60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc, 10 % Cab-Sauv from low yields of 30 hl/ha. Modern winemaking techniques include elevage sur lie, batonnage, sans soutirage and 100% new oak. Mr Perse tells us that this is a Millesime exceptionnel, de tres grande garde. This is big, hot, sexy & voluptuous. (FV17).
