Mauregard Monbazillac

Mauregard Monbazillac 2007

Monbazillac, Sud-Ouest, FranceCrystalline orange and lemon, fragrant white flowers, piercing orange oil mark this potent Monbazillac, a blend of semillon, sauvignon blanc and muscadelle. Hints of plasticine, waves of botrytis, ash season the fuller, buttered palate, one apricot heady, through to the warm, fuzzy finish. The higher proportion of muscadelle differentiates Monbazillac from neighbouring Sauternes. This was a Marks & Spencer bottling from Yvon Mau.Tasted: 08 June 2017Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 20.00 375 estimated retail Producer: MauregardBlend: Sauvignon Blanc - Sémillon
