Château Monbousquet 2008 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classé

The nose is fruity, fresh, elegant and offers power, balance as well as a small intensity. It reveals notes of cassis, blackberry and small notes of small black berries associated with fine touches of wild strawberry as well as hints of spices, gray pepper, tobacco and very discreet hints of flowers. The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers a beautiful definition, a beautiful minerality, a good freshness as well as a good structure. On the palate this wine expresses notes of black cherry, cassis and small notes of small ripe berries associated with small touches of flowers, spices as well as discreet hints of tobacco, tonka bean, mushroom and gray pepper. Good length. Tannins are fine and well-built. There is a discreet hint of cocoa on the persistence.
