    March 12, 2021 - This was fully mature delicious Monbousquet! Classic Right Bank nose with blueberry, blackberry, cherries, currants aromas, with leather, tobacco, smoke blended in. Palate is medium body, soft black fruits, currant preserves, secondary flavors of leather, tobacco, cedar and nearly fully resolved tannins and balanced acidity. Long finish. One of the best vintages of this chateau I have tasted. Prime time drinking!

    November 30, 2020 - Impressive Bordeaux. Modern style. Prune, cocoa, graphite. Sweet fruit profile. Easily can go another 10. Tasty!

    November 28, 2020 - Fine wine with earthy tastes. Great color with an accompanying delightful finish. Probably at its peak

    November 2, 2020 - Fine mature Bordeaux, said to be at the upper limit for age so maybe at it’s peak
