Origin France, South West
Village Monbazillac
ABV 12%

According to Bruno Bilancini, Monbazillac gets just as much botrytis as nearby Sauternes, but nothing like the kudos. His Chateau Tirecul La Graviere 2013, (£23.95; is golden in colour, with a spicy nose and great richness - it's brilliant value. Harry Eyres (Dec 2017)

Château Tirecul la Gravière

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"
