Monbazillac Wine

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.

  • Domaine de Grange Neuve Monbazillac 2012

    Snoothrank:

    I bought this bottle of wine for £10 from the producer at the London France Show. The Monbazillac appellation was set up in 1936 [although wine production in the area goes back to at least the Benedictine monks of the 12th century] for sweet white wines produced in 5 communes around the village of that name on the south-west bank of the Dordogne...

  • Chateau le Fage Monbazillac 1964

    Snoothrank:

    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

    Golden color. Short lived hints of tropical fruits. Unbalanced and short aftertaste. Read More

    Wine review by sfquixote


  • 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

  • Hi Snooth. Recently i find a bottle of Monbazillac wine in the supermarket, but the label was a little confussing. There was no name, no domine or chateau. Only the aoc and the vintage appear in the  label. How common is this. Should i take this wine seriously Read More
