Thanks to the total dedication of owner Jean-Luc Vonderheyden, Monbrison continued to perform outside its class in 2000. Fragrant, perfumed aromas with suggestions of vanilla and lavender make this wine immediately attractive. It is soft, which suggests its aging will be fast, but the liquorice fruit flavors and ripeness will give pleasure after five years.
