Château Tirecul La Gravière:
Rising in tiers at an altitude of 60 to 100 metres, all the vines are facing North and East. A remarkable rarity which allows a slow ripening, retaining the complexity and the finesse of the aromas and tastes. The soil is argilo-calcaire with sand here and there.

Rising in tiers at an altitude of 60 to 100 metres, all the vines are facing North and East. A remarkable rarity which allows a slow ripening, retaining the complexity and the finesse of the aromas and tastes. The soil is argilo-calcaire with sand here and there. The hard limestone is present in the higher tiers which are mainly given over to dry white. The steep slopes of Terecul allows for excellent drainage. Its disposition and the abundance of clay favour the retention of the autumnal mists which are indispensable for the development of noble rot. Read less

The 1994 La Graviere Vendange Tardive possesses a fabulous, intense perfume of exotic fruits and honey, an amazing richness, purity, and a level of concentration and balance that must be tasted to be believed. It is capable of lasting from 10andndash;20 years. Sadly, only 50 cases were produced for the world.

Like ambrosia, this unique dessert wine delights the senses and satisfies the sweet tooth. The wine is as golden as sunshine, featuring wildflower honey, cinnamon and apricot aromatics that explode from the glass. The fruit is endowed with considerable weight but nicely balanced. Pour a glass, cut up some fresh fruit and enjoy a little piece of heaven on earth.

The 1995 Monbazillac exhibits a deep golden color, an orange marmalade, tropical fruit-scented (pineapple and coconut) nose,m super-extracted, awesomely rich, pure, and well-delineated flavors, full body, an unctuous texture, and dazzling length. This amazing wine should evolve for 15-20 years.
