Located in the Bergerac region in France’s southwest, this appellation produces Sauternes-type botrytized sweet wines. The same varieties used in Sauternes figure here as well: Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc, and Muscadelle. The wines can represent excellent value, especially considering the sometimes stratospheric prices of Sauternes, and some are just as ageworthy.

  • Monbazillac 2006

    Snoothrank:

    This wine has a beautiful amber color. This is an almost balanced wine, with a little too much alcohol in the nose, and a delicious touch of honey in the mouth. It also has a short aftertaste. Regardless of a few minor faults, it awaked my interest in botrytized wines. Great with fresh cheese. Read More

Ageing for 14 months in oak barrels before bottling.White gold colour. It is a fresh and pure wine developing beautiful aromas of pear, grapefruit but also hazeln... Read More
