Château Monbousquet Rouge (2000) (Only 2 available)

New

Bright ruby-red. Roasted currant and black cherry scents complicated by sexy oak. At once chewy and silky in the mouth, with complex, fresh flavors of plum, redcurrant, vanilla, coffee, smoky oak and woodsy underbrush. Finishes sweet and long, with thoroughly ripe tannins.

    Monbousquet’s terroir is truly exceptional, with mostly warm, deep gravel to the south and sandy-clay soils to the north. As at Cheval Blanc and Figeac its soils are largely gravel, and thus warm, so relatively late-ripening Cabernets can ripen perfectly. This natural feature accounts for the particularly large proportion of these grapes in the vineyard’s composition.
    The property was drained in 1998, at a depth of 2.4 meters below the surface.
    The entire vineyard is situated on quatenary alluvial formations which are difficult to date precisely. Nonetheless, the gravel deposits are estimated to be between 10,000 and 700,000 years old.
    Clay and a vein of iron-pan round out the terroir.
