1996 Château Monbousquet - France, Bordeaux, Libournais, St. Émilion Grand Cru (6/29/2018)

I bought a few bottles of this at auction 3 years ago. This is the first one I've tried. 60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. Decanted 2 hours before drinking. Solid cork. Heavily sedimented. Brownish red color. Creamy texture. This wine opened up the more it aired out. Notes of asphalt, red berries and leather. This wine got deeper and longer as the night went on and just kept improving. 92 points
