Chateau Monbousquet is another St. Emilion estate with a long history in the appellation that can trace its history all the way back to 1540. At the time, Monbousquet belonged to François de Lescours, before it became the property of the well-established De Carles family.

In fact, Monbousquet remained in the hands of the de Carles family for almost 150 years. The beautiful, classically styled chateau was built in 1648 by Jacques de Geres. The chateau is now the private home of Gerard Perse and Chantal Perse along with the rest of the Perse family.

At the close of World War 2, the Querre family purchased Chateau Monbousquet. With their efforts, Chateau Monbousquet began making better wines.

Region/Country: Saint Emilion Grand Cru, Bordeaux, France

96 Points by James Suckling: 
"A soft and very silky Monbousquet with wonderfully caressing texture. Full body. Delicious crushed cherries and berries. Beautiful length, too. Hard not to drink now. Better after 2024.

92 points by Robert Parker:
The Monbousquet 2016 Blanc drifts slowly and sensuously from the glass with orange blossom, honeysuckle and yuzu zest scents over a core of lemon curd, white peaches and pineapple. Medium-bodied, the palate is packed with stone fruit and lemony flavors, with a racy backbone and satiny texture, finishing long and lively." - Reviewed by Lisa Perrotti-Brown

Chateau Monbousquet(蒙寶石酒莊)位於法國波爾多右岸的聖埃美隆(Saint-Emilion)產區,是聖埃美隆列級莊(Grand Cru Classe)之一。同時亦是目前也是聖埃美隆一級A特等酒莊(Premier Grand Cru Classe A)柏菲酒莊(Chateau Pavie)的擁有者傑拉德·佩斯(Gerard Perse)擁有的第一家酒莊(與1993年收購)。自1994年之後,酒莊每年生產的酒質都處於極高的水準,該酒莊1995年份及1998年份的葡萄酒在盲品酒會中獲得羅伯特•帕克(Robert Parker)讚譽,其表現甚至勝過很多知名的酒莊。

Chateau Monbousquet(蒙寶石酒莊)酒莊歷史可以追溯到1540年,酒莊當時由Francois de Lescours 所有,後來幾百年間幾經轉手,1858年由Comte de Vassal-Montviel買下並不斷的擴大酒莊葡萄園的面積,酒莊繁榮發展,知名度得到了很大的提升,後來成為聖埃美隆地區最大的酒莊之一。之後幾經周轉由現在的一級莊柏菲酒莊(Chateau Pavie)莊主傑勒德·佩斯(Gerard Perse)買下,他們買下之後更新了酒莊的排水管道和釀酒設備,並修建了新的酒窖,聘請了著名釀酒師米歇爾·羅蘭(Michel Rolland)擔任釀酒顧問。在佩斯家族的悉心打理下,蒙寶石酒莊的葡萄酒品質突飛猛進。2006年,蒙寶石酒莊順利升級為聖埃美隆優等列級莊 Grand Cru Classe

Chateau Monbousquet 葡萄比例包括 60% Merlot ,右岸聖埃美隆最具代表性的葡萄,為酒帶來豐富的水果氣息和圓潤感,30% Cabernet Franc ,相對較遲熟的葡萄,卻是能夠在 Monbousquet 得到完全成熟,展完出極迷人細緻的質感,而最後10% Cabernet Sauvignon 就是加強酒的酒體結構和帶來單寧。酒莊的葡萄經人工採摘後置於控溫的不銹鋼發酵罐中發酵。發酵完成後,酒液進入新橡木桶中熟化18至24個月。熟化期間,釀酒人員每三個月會對葡萄酒進行一次倒罐(Racking)。為了保持葡萄酒的純正風味,Chateau Monbousquet葡萄酒在裝瓶前一律不經澄清過濾。
