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.

Medium bodied, bright, crisp red berry filled wine with touches of oak, tobacco leaf, cigar box and dried fruit. Light, bright and not too tight, you can drink this now and over the next 5 years or so.

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.

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.

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.
