There is a strong citrus note in the nose before you get to all the toasty oak, and black with blue fruits. The wine is better on its rich, dense, luscious, opulently =-textured palate with its blast of flashy, black cherries and chocolate. The wine comes in an attention-seeking, oversized and overweight bottle. Drink from 2025-2040.

Deep and dark in color, the wine quickly exudes flowers, licorice, espresso, black cherry liqueur, smoke and boysenberry aromas. With velvet tannins, concentration, richness and a flashy, fleshy style, this hedonistic wine delivers the goods. Voluptuous in character, give this at least 5-7 years before opening a bottle, if you can wait that long. 92-94 Pts

The wine comes in an over-sized bottle that matches its big, boisterous character. Packed with espresso bean, licorice, black and blue fruit and incense, currently, the wine displays a bit too much oak, so it is going to need time to integrate, allowing all the layers of ripe fruits to shine through. If the oak fully integrates, my score will look shy. Drink from 2025-2035.

Looks can be deceiving. But not in this case. The super-sized bottle matches the big, outgoing character of the fruit here. Big, but never avoirdupois, the voluptuous nature gets noticed due to its multiple layers of decadent, ripe fruits. Black, red and blue, with a box of licorice, polished tannins and a long, mouth-filling finish are what you are going to experience. This is my first time tasting this wine and I hope it is not going to be my last. 92-94 Pts

Opulent, silky, lush and fresh, the wine offers rich textures and layers of ripe, polished, sweet fruits. This is a new wine that comes from vines planted close to Chateau Monbousquet. I look forward to tasting subsequent vintages as the 2019 was equally successful.
