- Syarat & Ketentuan
The idea for this wine was born in early 1994 during a vineyard inspection with Michel Rolland : actually, it was more of an impulse than an idea, almost crazy bet. While deciding which grapes to plan on a freshly prepared parcel of land, Gerard Perse and Michel Rolland came up with the idea why not white? These two men, one a world-famous oenologist, the other a passionate newcomer to Saint-Emilion, both love challenge. Together they decided to rise to the task, and the parcel called "La Graviere" was planted with Sauvignon Blanc, Sauvignon Gris, Semillon and Muscadelle. The varieties were unheard of in Saint-Emilion and the results were not certain.
Tasting notes : The 2013 Monbousquet Blanc has an attractive bouquet with hints of fresh pear, grapefruit and almond aromas that unfurl nicely in the glass. The palate is well balanced with crisp acidity, citrus lemon, grapefruit and, again, fresh pear notes with a slightly brittle but sustained finish. This has improved since I tasted it in barrel and should provide several years of drinking pleasure.
