CHÂTEAU TIRECUL LA GRAVIÈRE
|Grapes||Sémillon, Muscadelle, Sauv Blanc|
|Origin||France, South West|
According to the owner, Bruno Bilancini, Monbazillac gets just as much botrytis as nearby Sauternes, but nothing like the kudos. Rich aromas of orange marmalade and apricots combine with a lovely, lush mouthfeel with a honeyed freshness which all remain wonderfully defined. This is the very best property in Monbazillac and the wines are very special. A beautiful alternative to Sauternes at a much more reasonable price. L&S (Oct 2021)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
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"
