Chateau Monbousquet Saint Emilion 2016
|Region||France, Bordeaux, St. Emilion|
Lush, warm and exotic in profile, with a gush of blackberry, fig and boysenberry reduction notes coursing through, inlaid nicely with thin graphite and tobacco threads that provide structure. A Lapsang souchong tea depth swirls through the finish, gilding the long echo of showy fruit. Best from 2022 through 2035.
This full, generous wine has tannins that integrate well with the rich berry fruits. There is a touch of smokiness as well as spice, toast and a final velvet texture. Drink this accessible wine from 2023.
