Château Monbousquet Saint-Emilion Red Bordeaux Blend 1998

Yields of 28-30 hectoliters per hectare are among the lowest in St.-Emilion, which no doubt accounts for the wine's explosive richness. The final blend, 60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 10% Cabernet Franc, was bottled unfined and unfiltered after 18 months in 100% new oak, with aging on the lees. Robert Parker

blowzy, boozy, obtuse, über extracted & overrated relic from the dynamic duo of paker/rolland who promoted wines of #Brobdingnagian build for point hoarding collectors in the waining years of the 20th century. interesting study, but taxing on the senses.

This bottle did not make it. Brownish color no fruit but bloody nose with an old structure.

Crinkly dark plums, still fresh fruit with great balance between alcohol, wood, and body. Fun for the whole family.

Expecting a touch more power for the vintage. Softer dark cherry and plum.

A really pleasant surprise. Thought this might be over the top but while plenty ripe, it has good earthy notes and graphite to complement the fruit. Really nice.

Black, dark fruit. Quite subdued and clear. Plum fruit and clarity. A little lacking midpalate but good balance.!

Decanted 40 min needed more time. Very dense cherry. Meaty flavors. Still fine structural. Tannins softening it may get better still

Not as full bodied as I hoped. Soft tannins, medium bodied, slightly sweet, very long delightful finish. Notes are not too complicated, not overbearing. Very drinkable and enjoyable for all.

Soft tannins yet surprising lush and plenty of fruit. I truly enjoyed it although it was not as elegant as I expected - almost new world in style.
