Vinous Reverie Notes
The wines come from the Monbazillac AOC which is located on the left bank of the Dordogne River, across from the town of Bergerac in South West France, roughly 60 miles east of Bordeaux. This AOC was created in 1936 (one of the first) and is only for sweet wines (the dry wines are labeled as Bergerac Sec). The primary grapes are Sémillon, Sauvignon Blanc and Muscadelle.
