Dom. de Grange Neuve, Monbazillac, 50cl - 2013
A fabulous dessert wine, sweet and luscious with a great backbone of fine acidity for a clean finish. The nose is fresh with classic botrytis marmalade and ripe nectarine, flavours on the palate are richer, honey and toffee finishing with a twist of bitter orange zest. Vineyards are based in the heart of Perigord, near Bergerac along the valley of the Dordogne river. Here, on the river slopes there is a particular micro-climate which favours the development of the botrytis necessary to make this style of sweet wine.
