Chateau Tirecul La Graviere Monbazillac MADAME 2006 MAGNUM (321)

France - South-West - Monbazillac


Serious competition for Chateau d’Yquem! This exceptional cuvee, not always produced, represents the fullest expression of pure Noble Rot. Each grape is harvested with extreme care, very often grape by grape. It delivers an extraordinary complexity of aromas, but its splendour reveals itself in the mouth, with a creaminess and a rare power, yet never with heaviness.

 

This cuvee is known by everyone, from Robert Parker with his note of 100/100 to Michel Bettane, not forgetting Jancis Robinson. It is one of the world references of our time.

 

The vines used for this super cuvee are 50 years old. The yield an astonishingly low 2 to 6 hl/ha. That is crazy! Up to eleven passes through the vineyard are made. This is a labour of love! The wines is fermented in new French oak and then aged in new oak for 20 to 30 months.

 

The quality and style are not unlike Coutet’s Cuvee Madame as the name suggests. Incredibly intense and powerful but always finishing clean. The wines are truly superb. I think the wine copares very favourably with Chateau d’Yquem!

B&D
Bettane and Desseauve

Creamy texture of huge brightness which coats the mouth wonderfully. A wine displaying everything in comfort, of meditation, which finishes freshly, without any sign of evolution. (for the experimental) Seasoned shrimps or curry powder will marry with the wine with great panache.

Gault and Millau

A hymn to great balance and vintage charm, from the aromatics exhibit notes of lavender, acacia honey and candied orange. Confirmation in the mouth, linear and refined sweetness. Balance guarantees a serene future. See you in half a century.
