Château Bélingard Réserve 2013 AOC Monbazillac (Sweet Wine)


Monbazillac is a small appellation on the left bank of the Dordogne River, just across Bergerac, producing exclusively sweet white wines. Though quite similar to Sauternes, they usually have a higher proportion of Muscadelle - 15% for this wine -  which brings different aromas. Nose of honey and candied fruit, typical of botrytis sweet wines, followed by a rich and sweet palate but still a nice level of acidity. A great wine for foie gras, blue cheese and fruit dessert. It can surely age for some time but with already a few years in the bottle, you can start drinking it now!

Wine Enthusiast

87/100 "With touches of botrytis, apricot and bitter orange flavors and perfumed sweetness, this is a textured wine that has plenty of the acidity of the year. It is ripe, still with its primary fruitiness intact. Drink from 2019."
