Issue Issue 108

($100-$115) Bright ruby-red. Roasted currant and black cherry scents complicated by sexy oak. At once chewy and silky in the mouth, with complex, fresh flavors of plum, redcurrant, vanilla, coffee, smoky oak and woodsy underbrush. Finishes sweet and long, with thoroughly ripe tannins. This was bottled in February of this year after 28 months in barrel; it wasn't too long ago that this wine received barely 18 months of elevage

From an unheralded terroir, this Monbousquet was made from extremely low yields of 28-30 hectoliters per hectare. Aged sur lie and bottled unfined and unfiltered, it exemplifies proprietor Perse's enormous efforts. Black and blue to the rim, this wine represents the essence of this terroir. Its saturated black/purple color is accompanied by extraordinary aromatics of sweet blackberries, chocolate, coffee, incense, new saddle leather, and vanilla. Remarkable intensity, lively acidity, and abundant tannin provide definition and grip. This is the most intense, muscular, and "biggest" Monbousquet made to date, and that is saying something considering the 1998 and 1999! So be prepared, it is remarkable wine.

Big and juicy, with a slightly barnyard character. This shows loads of fruit, with dark chocolate and berry. Meaty, rustic finish. Slightly too rustic to be outstanding. 6,665 cases made.

Bottle opened for about 2h, no decant. This was drinking very nicely... Classic nose of tobacco and cassis. Medium to full bodied on the palate with a smooth and very balanced finish. Really smooth tannins. Seems to be at its peak but definitely not over the hill... Paired perfectly with duck leg confit.

Deep purple in color. Cedar on nose and showing sweet blueberry tannins. Probably near it's peak.

This wine could easily be mistaken as hailing from California rather than Bordeaux. The new wave high shouldered/sloped bottle only makes the potential confusion more apt to occur. (The new bottle truly looks hideous and can'tbe winning Perse any friends from the Bordeaux old guard.) 60% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. A huge nose of toasty oak, spice, and dark fruits. Thick and rich in the mouth with significant tannin. A big blowsy Loni Anderson kind of wine. You would be well served to save a ton of cash and buy the '98 or '99 Monbousquet rather than the 2000. Both of those vintages are better than this wine ? the 2000 is coming dangerously close to caricature.

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.
