One of the finest Monbrisons produced in many years, the 2006 is a sleeper of the vintage exhibiting classic floral, black currant, roasted herb, and incense characteristics, medium body, and an attractively textured, supple finish. Enjoy it over the next decade. Good value. Rating: 88 Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate, www.RobertParker.com (Sep 2011)
Some berry, mineral and fruit character, with slightly austere tannins. Medium- to full-bodied. Medium finish Rating: 85-88 James Suckling, The Wine Spectator (May 2007)
Intense colour, fine floral and blackcurrant fruit, shows good lift and a lovely freshness and purity, good length, very good. 2012-20. Rating: **** www.decanter.com (Apr 2007)
Château Monbrison is in the commune of Arsac, a near neighbour of Château du Tertre. Robert Davis, an American, bought the estate in 1921 when he married into a local family.
Owning a Bordeaux estate was not always an easy thing at a time of World Wars and Depression, and Monbrison’s vineyards were pulled up in 1939. Fortunately, Robert’s daughter Elizabeth had the foresight to replant the vineyards in 1963, initially selling the produce to Château Prieuré-Lichine but from the mid-1970’s producing wines of Château Monbrison in their own right. Today the estate is owned and run by Robert Davis’s grandson Laurent Vonderheyden.
Vineyards are planted with 50% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot.
