Monbazillac Jour de Fruit Domaine de l’Ancienne Cure 375ml, botrytis sweet wine, honeyed, nectar, delicious half bottle for dessert or cheese. Monbazillac has a long history (known as early as the 14th century) and is one of the world’s great sweet wines. The vineyard on Monbazillac hill is positioned on limestone layered with molassic sands and marl.  The special micro-climate of its position on the north-facing slopes is particularly conducive to those autumnal mists which harbour the microscopic growth called botrytis cinerea or noble rot.  This little bottle houses a superb value organic dessert wine.  It is  a fruitful, honey and blossom fresh nectar which with some roquefort and Pate will have you munching and sipping for hours.

Christian Roche is the 5th generation of his family to take on the vines at l'Ancienne Cure, having taken over in 1984.

He soon realised the best way to preserve his vines and continue to produce high quality wine was to convert the winery to organic production. He is now producing excellent quality wines under 9 appellations around Bergerac, and is often cited as one of the region's finest producers. The Monbazillac is produced with a blend of Semillon and Muscadelle, using dried and botrytised grapes, and rivals many Sauternes.
