    Winemaker's Notes:

    The full throttle 1999 Monbousquet exhibits an exotic bouquet of ripe dark cherry and black currant intermixed with scents of coffee, tobacco, and vanilla. The finish is long and pure. This wine spends 18 months in 100% new oak and is bottled unfined and unfiltered. It consists of 60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc, and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The dense ruby/purple-colored 1999 Monbousquet exhibits a port-like bouquet of super-ripe black cherry and black currant fruit intermixed with scents of coffee, tobacco, and vanilla. Tipping the scales at a whopping 14% alcohol (extremely high for Bordeaux), this wine, which spends 18 months in 100% new oak and is bottled unfined and unfiltered, is a blend of 60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc, and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. It was cropped at an amazingly low 30 hectoliters per hectare. It possesses an amazing texture, a mid-palate that you could get lost in, and a sensational 40-45 second finish. The exotic aromas, incredible texture, and abundant fruit are reminiscent of Pomerol's renowned micro-cuvee, Le Pin. The 1999 is even better from bottle than it was from cask.

    Delivers loads of smoky wood on the nose, with sweet pipe tobacco and dried dark fruits. Full-bodied, offering big, velvety tannins, and a long, long finish. This is a blockbuster for the vintage. Really impressive.

    Wine Spectator

    Good medium ruby. Highly nuanced, expressive nose of raspberry, roasted meat, charred oak, minerals and coffee. Lush, chewy and sweet, with impressive thickness of texture for a '99. Very ripe and layered. Finishes ripely tannic and very long. Transcends the vintage.
