This vineyard is located in the Bergerac area, on the left bank of the Dordogne River. The vineyard was very famous during the Sixteen and Seventeen centuries when the Dutch merchants were buying the full production to import it in their country. During the last century, the Monbazillac was considered as second class Sauternes. Due to a new generation of wine growers, the Monbazillac acquired the deserved high reputation amongst the French Sweet Wines.
The wine is issued from Sémillon, Sauvignon and Muscadelle grapes, harvest by hand when the grapes are affected by the famous fungus botrytis cinerea, the "noble rot".
They are appreciated as apéritif wine, but also recommended with foie gras, Roquefort, poultry in creamy sauce and strawberries.
