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.
Neal Martin - eRobertParker.com #224 (Apr 2016)
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.
J.M. - Wine Spectator
60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. Ripe with luscious fruit - soft and seductive on the palate. Tight tannic finish but early accessibility. Perhaps misses a little tension.
Tight and structured with blackberry and blueberry character. Hints of almonds and spice. Full and savory. Velvety tannins.
This wine is ripe and impressive, with its dark tannins and powerful structure. With light acidity, it is all about richness and a firm character that shows density as well as ripe fruits.
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.
