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.

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. It is a remarkable effort for the vintage.

Modern, pumped-up wine. Dark-colored. Very smoky, almost gamy aromas, with dried red fruits. Medium- to full-bodied, with chewy tannins and an astringent finish. Slightly overextracted, but impressive. 10,000 cases made.

Very French/Bordeaux in style. Smooth start with still strong tannins. Velvet finish on back of tongue. Restrained fruit, not a lot of sweetness. Medium body. Mild spice, blackberrry and cherry

One of the best wines I've had in a while...tempered with tobacco, soy, raspberries, and some coffee. Some sweet vanilla thrown in for good measure, most likely from the french oak barrels. So damn good...I am so looking forward to my next bottle. Monbousquet was my first good bordeaux I had as an introduction to french wines. I still remember the afternoon I tried the 1996 for the first time - it was like drinking liquid silk. Here's to good times ahead.

We really enjoyed this wine. What a really pleasant surprise! The nose was a beautiful -- dare I say -- port like richness with hints of cedar (?), vanilla, and boysenberries. The flavors were a blend of dried fruits, sweet tannins, and a hint of oaky vanillan. The finish was rather subdued and cost this beauty from scoring higher. But overall an outstanding bottle of wine. Served with eggplant parm and butter garlic sauteed summer squash.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
