Description

Chateau Monbousquet originates from the late 16th century, and in the early 18th century the property came to the de Carle family, seigneurs of Château Figeac, while winemaking began at Château Monbousquet in the 19th century when Comte de Vassal-Montviel expanded the estate to 40 hectares and had vines planted on a large scale. A neglected property by 1945, it was bought by Daniel Querre who began thorough restaurations of the vineyards and buildings, continued by his son Alain Querre. In the following years Monbousquet became one of the best-known non-classified wines of Saint-Émilion. In 1993 Chateau Monbousquet was acquired by the Parisian supermarket owner Gérard Perse, who later bought Château Pavie, Château Pavie-Decesse and Château La Clusière. Consultancy is provided by the oenologist Michel Rolland. The estate was elevated to Grand cru classé in the Saint-Émilion classification of 2006. Chateau Monbousquet is an assemblage of 60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. The grand vin is usually aged for 18-24 months in new oak barrels with racking every 3 months, though this can change depending on the vintage. Annual production 8300 cases.
