Monbazillac Wine

Monbazillac Wine

We have recounted previously the tale of Robin Yapp's providential discovery of Christian Roche's magnificent Monbazillac when he was served it on three successive occasions on a rare non-buying trip to France in the early 1990s. He finally concluded that higher forces were at work and so sought Christian out at his Domaine de l'Ancienne Cure cellars by the Route Nationale 21, 8 kilometres due south of Bergerac. Well, the story may be getting rather hackneyed but Christian's Monbazillac is as fresh as ever - it is made from 90% Semillon and 10% Muscadelle, has a deep golden robe, barley sugar bouquet and a rich, hedonistic palate of dried fruit, honey and nuts. Traditionally it is served chilled as a pre-prandial pick-me-up but it also makes an excellent partner to fruit-based puddings.
