Monbazillac is a wine appellation in the South West region of France where the sweet wines are blended from the permitted white grape varieties of Sémillon, Sauvignon Blanc and Muscadelle, It was established by decree in May 1936.
The appellation covers 1905 hectares in the communes of Colombier, Monbazillac, Pomport, Rouffignac-de-Sigoulès and Saint-Laurent-des-Vignes in the south-west corner of the department of Dordogne.
These wines develop honey and acacia characteristics quickly and can be drunk while quite young. However they also age beautifully and develop a considerable complexity.
Try the wines from the Domaine de l'Ancienne Cure.
