Monbazillac has a long history (known as early as the 14th century) and is one of the world’s great sweet wines. Christian Roche has emerged in the last five years as one of the best growers in this appellation. The vineyard on Monbazillac hill is positioned on limestone interbedded with molassic sands and marl and the special micro-climate of its position on the north-facing slopes is particularly conducive to those autumnal mists which harbour the microscopic fungoid growth called botrytis cinerea.

The Cuvée Abbaye, (70% Semillon, 30% Muscadelle picked on successive tries through the vineyard) with its spanking botrytis, is absolutely stunning, an organic wine to give top Sauternes a run for its money. It is luscious deep gold, honeyed and fat with peachy botrytis tones, gingerbread, hazelnuts, fresh mint and eucalyptus on the palate.

TASTING NOTES
It is luscious deep gold, honeyed and fat with peachy botrytis tones, gingerbread, hazelnuts, fresh mint and eucalyptus on the palate. The Ancienne Cure is mini Mon-bee, marzipan, orange peel and spices.
