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"
The whole family can indulge their sweet tooth at this time of year - and what better way to get your kick than through a hand-picked selection of sweeties!? All in half-bottles this collection will fit any occasion and suit all palates. From classic Sauternes in the shape of 2007 Rieussec to the historic superstar Tokaji - so loved by Queen Victoria. Break out the Mince Pies, the biscotti and the Stilton - it's time to get the gold stuff out.
