Tasting Notes

The 2019 Monbousquet has an expressive nose with ebullient black cherries, blueberry, violet and iris flower. The palate is medium-bodied with mineral-rich black fruit, lovely balance and elegant with a precise and persistent finish. This bottle surpasses the one tasted at the property after bottling last year. Superb. Tasted blind at the Southwold annual tasting. Drink 2025-2048

Neal Martin, vinous.com (Southwold), February 2023

Aromas of ripe cherries, fig jam, sweet soil tones, cloves and other warm spices introduce the 2019 Monbousquet, a medium to full-bodied, rich and concentrated wine that's broad and generous, with a muscular, fruit-driven profile underpinned by plenty of powdery, generously extracted tannin.

William Kelley, RobertParker.com, April 2022

Plenty of deep, rich fruit with blackberries, tar and walnuts. Moss, too. It’s full and flavorful. Tannic and rich. Very intense.
