Reviews & Scores

"The 2021 Monbousquet offers lovely fruit density in the mid-weight, slightly nervy style of the year. There's terrific energy and vibrancy running through the 2021. Rose petal, lavender, spice and mint perk up the finish. The 2021 is delicate, nuanced and super classy."
90-92 points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous

"A good amount of blackberry and black olive with a medium body, firm tannins and a fresh finish. Balanced and rather delicate."
91-92 points, James Sucking

"The 2021 Monbousquet was picked from 29 September to 6 October and was the only property impacted by frost; therefore, they deselected the second generation buds at the end of August, so yields are just 18.55hL/ha. It has a clean, pure and perfumed bouquet with violet-infused black fruit, floral and more intense than many of its peers. The palate is medium-bodied with a bit of hardness on the entry. Moderate depth, more compact than...
the aromatics suggest with a touch of black pepper towards the finish. This will need three or four years in bottle."
89-90 points, Neal Martin, Vinous

74% Sauvignon Blanc, 26% Sémillon. Barrel sample. Fragrant and pure with pin-point precision. All in length and line. Floral, citrus aromas. Delicious fruit but again controlled, the finish pebble-sucking and saline. Atypical white Bordeaux. Could be burgundy – Puligny? JR
