2020 Château Monbrison  (Margaux) 90

Fresh plums, spice, smoke and a touch of espresso come together to form the core of this wine. Medium-bodied, soft, silky and fresh, with a supple, creamy, refined, red berry finish. This is the finest example of Monbrison I've tasted in ages. 89-91 Pts

2010 Château Monbrison  (Margaux) 89

Medium-bodied, lighter, fresher, pleasant, earthy wine which is already displaying its red fruit, earth, spice and tobacco leaf character with ease. This is not a wine for long-term aging. I'd drink this before it reaches its 18th birthday. 89 Points

2006 Château Monbrison  (Margaux) 87

Better on the nose, with its earthy, sweet cherry blossom, plum and tobacco perfume, than on the medium bodied, rustic palate. You can drink this now, or age it for more secondary characteristics. 87 Points

2005 Château Monbrison  (Margaux) 88

Better on the nose, due to the floral and tobacco accents that ride on top of the plum and dark cherry fruits, than on the medium bodied, earthy, red berry palate. Close to fully mature, if you own this wine, it is a good time to start drinking it. 88 Points

Light in color and body, the wine is soft, earthy and leafy. with more tobacco and cedar than red fruits on the nose and palate. Easy to drink, the wine is slowly fading away. Drink up if you have any. 86 Points

2000 Château Monbrison  (Margaux) 86

Better on the nose, with its tobacco, earth, cherry and cassis scents, than on the medium bodied, light, soft, bright, crisp, red berry dominated palate. I'm not sure there is anything to be gained by aging this wine any longer. 86 Points
