Château Beautrand - Monbazillac Vieilles Vignes
South-West - Monbazillac AOP
The history of Château de Beautrand dates back to the early 1960s. Originally, it was the Haute Fonrousse estate, bought in 1962 by Gaston Géraud from a Belgian family. This 34 hectare property located in Monbazillac has been managed since 2007 by Stéphane Géraud, grandson of Gaston. This family of winegrowers is renowned for its quality wines. Very attached to traditions, the winegrower spirit reigns supreme.
This wine is refined from free-run juice settled before fermentation. Vinification is done at low temperature. Aging takes place in thermoregulated cement and stainless steel vats between 8°C and 9°C, then bottling takes place 24 months after harvest.
This wine is fruity, with aromas of dried apricot and honey, as well as a nice balance of taste.
Grape variety: 60% Sémillon, 30% Sauvignon Blanc, 10% Muscadelle

It is more than recommended to serve Monbazillac with a carpaccio of foie gras and figs. This wine also goes well with Suzette pancakes, peach crumble with chocolate sauce and fruit tarts. It is ideally served between 6-8°C.
