|Grapes||Sémillon, Muscadelle, Sauv Blanc|
|Origin||France, South West|
Les Pins is the excellent second wine from a Monbazillac château which can be relied on to give top Sauternes properties a run for their money. The 2013 negotiates the tightrope balancing act of combining lushness and opulence with tingling freshness through flavours of acacia honey, apricot and candied citrus peel. If you're a foie gras eater, here's one for you. If you're not, it'll go with any number of puddings and blue cheeses.

Château Tirecul la Gravière: Full Wine List and Profile
Monbazillac is well-known in French history. The vineyard is planted with a high percentage of Muscadelle (50%), along with Semillon (45%), and Sauvignon (5%). These grapes are picked grape by grape (as they develop the noble rot), not by bunch. The proprietors, Claudia and Bruno Bilancini, actually pass through the vineyard a minimum of four to five times a day. It is an understatement to say these are the greatest wines I have ever tasted from Monbazillac; in fact, they are among the greatest sweet wines I have tasted ... from anywhere! "Robert Parker"
