Named after the founder of the Monmousseau fortunes, Justin-Marcel Monmousseau, this may be labeled as nonvintage, but in effect it's from the 2002 vintage. That gives it some good age, shown in the toasty character. But there is also good freshness, ripe apples and cream flavors and crisp acidity. Imported by Langdon Shiverick.
