The blue lover’s nirvana! Three of the finest British blues, married together by a very special Montbazillac. Beauvale is just simply dangerous to have around, it just disappears. Britain’s answer to Gorgonzola is sweet, and creamy. This is cut through with the piquant fresh acidity from the Beenliegh Blue, this trio is brought into perfect harmony with the raw milk ‘stiltonesque’ Stichelton. …and then we have the Montbazillac!
Bruno and Claudie Bilancini’s 400 year old vineyard is situated in the region’s premier crus. Since 1997 when they bought the estate they are now regarded as one of the trailblazers. Obtaining almost perfect scores from the likes of Robert Parker and Jeb Dunnuck these wines regularly display levels of concentration, richness and balance that demonstrate their ability to age over for 30 to 50 years.
The vineyard is planted with a high percentage of Muscadelle (50%), along with Semillon (45%), and Sauvignon (5%). These grapes are picked grape by grape (as they develop the noble rot), not by bunch. The proprietors, Claudia and Bruno Bilancini, actually pass through the vineyard a minimum of four to five times a day.
“It is an understatement to say these are the greatest wines I have ever tasted from Monbazillac; in fact, they are among the greatest sweet wines I have tasted … from anywhere!” Robert Parker
