Chateau Tirecul la Graviere Monbazillac MADAME 2009 MAGNUM (1669)

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!

The 2009 Monbazillac Cuvee Chateau is flat out gorgeous. Sporting a lighter gold color as well as heavenly notes of apricots, honey, white flowers and caramelized pineapple, it stays light and graceful on the palate, with an elegant texture carrying plenty of sweet fruit. It’s a screaming value. (Drink between 2017-2037) 


La Revue du Vin de France

Madam vintage inspired and accomplished, has both more depth and refinement, a touch of opulent mouth but exceptionally tense, vibrant flavor notes raised mousseron and cream ... A real paradigm of the greatness of Monbazillac .


Gault and Millau

The sweetness of nectar honeydew. A bottom composition of the best royal jelly with a subtle touch of orange blossom. To make you crazy. The creamy texture is masterful. A beautiful vintage.
