A horse of a different color, with savory and sage notes streaking past the well-endowed core of glistening plum, blackberry and boysenberry fruit. A polished mesquite edge frames all the elements, while the finish glides on. Best from 2017 through 2027. 7,916 cases made.–JM  Wine Spectator 93

The 2012 Monbousquet is pliant and expressive, with silky, suave tannins framing the forward, red-fleshed stone fruits. Sweet floral and spice notes add aromatic lift on the feminine finish. Readers will find considerable near and medium-term appeal in this juicy Saint-Emilion from the Perse family. Monbousquet is 60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon.-- Antonio Galloni 91  vinous


From the least hallowed terroir of the Perse family, the 2012 Monbousquet (a blend of 60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon) displays spicy vanillin and new oak, Christmas fruitcake aromas along with incense, black cherry and blackcurrant fruit. It is medium-bodied, with light tannin in a very approachable style. It is certainly not the most concentrated Monbousquet ever made under the Perse regime, but it is very well-balanced and capable of hitting its prime in about 3-4 years and lasting 12-15.
