Monbazillac Wine

for this region?


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.

  • Emark - nice wines. Monbazillac isn't a region to be sneezed at. It's not as famous as Sauternes, but Sauternes is by no means the best sweet wine from France. Actually, I suppose in a sense it is because of all the money that's been invested over the last forty years, but France has a lot of places that make good sweet wine that never got that ...

  • Chateau le Fage Monbazillac 1964


    Beautiful golden/amber color. Very much a nutty nose with a touch of orange blossom. Charming on the tongue. Creamy, nutty sweetness with a hint of orange tartness at the back of the palate. A fairly rich wine that, more than anything else, reminds me of a low-alcohol sweet vermouth. Read More

    Wine review by EMark

  • Monbazillac = poor man's Sauternes. My big reference book says that aged Monbazillac when young is very much like Sauternes but with some age, takes on more of that nuttiness that Sauternes don't. Read More
