Tastes real, but a little herbal, even green. There some freshness and it does flow, so not a bad effort, and the élevage may round it out, but... it's not an exciting prospect for now. Rating: 89 L&S (Apr 2012)

Dark cherry red. Oak spice to the fore. Vanilla and dark cherry fruit. Then unexpectedly fluid and bright on the palate. Fine, but slightly drying, tannins though quite juicy on the finish. 2017-2028 Rating: 16.5 Julia Harding MW, www.JancisRobinson.com (Apr 2012)
Fine aromatic expression and good precise fruit, well-defined elegance and persistence. Drink 2015-2025. Rating: 16 www.decanter.com (Apr 2012)
Light, with modest plum and cherry fruit and a floral hint. Clean and pure, but a bit shy on stuffing in the end. Rating: 86-89 James Molesworth, The Wine Spectator (Apr 2012)
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.
