The liquoreux 1999

Another extraordinary year with a sublime Cuvee Madame but at what price ! Grapes gathered in from select parcels at 2 hl/ha! Four select picks from 11 October to 4 November. A development of sour rot necessitated a ruthless selection process but the results were worth it.

Cuvée Madame 1999  

Cuvee Madame 1999 an anthology of extreme suavity, without heaviness and with a pure nose of crystallised fruits, a real treat.

‘This Cuvee Madame appears for the third time at the very summit of excellence. The nose reflects a triumphant marriage between wood aromas of wine, crystallised fruits, quince, fig and honey. Impressive by its volume and sweetness in the mouth without heaviness’. Guide Hachette

Château Tirecul La Gravière 1999 :

Le Chateau Tirecul La Graviere 1999 is only slightly less concentrated in a register focussed on notes of lime and fig.

‘This classic Monbazillac is also a marvel. The 1999 vintage gives a wine of character with a real aging potential’. Guide Fémivins.

Guide Femivins ‘A silky structure, perfectly balanced between sugar, alcohol and acidity with a long finale in the mouth. A wine of character and amazing potential’ Guide Hachette.
