The 1998 Monbousquet is medium to deep garnet-brick in color with wonderful dried mulberries, kirsch and prune preserves notions with hints of cigar box, Chinese five spice and potpourri plus a waft of liquid licorice. Medium-bodied, it's very spicy with a wonderful core of plum and cherry preserves and beautifully plush tannins, finishing very long and spicy. Delicious now and should age a further 10 to 15+ years!

A full-throttle, jammy red, with lots of coffee, raisin and spice character on both nose and palate. Full-bodied, with big, velvety tannins and a long, rich finish. Not much in elegance here, but opulent and impressive. Still needs time. (JS, Web only-2009)
Bright ruby. Lively aromas of cassis, blackberry, violet and spice. Rich and creamy in the mouth, with spicy dark berry flavors. Finishes with substantial but ripe tannins and excellent length. Plenty of extraction here but gracefully done. (ST)
Lots of oak and concentration. Not obviously Saint-Emilion. Chocolatey, rich, New World style.
