Les vendanges 2008 ont été très longues, du 30 septembre 16 novembre, en trois passages. La qualité du botrytis était parfaite et le tri souvent à la grappe. Aucune perte et une pureté de goût irréprochable. Les raisins pour la cuvée Madame proviennent presque intégralement de la première trie et un peu de la fin de la troisième.

« Porté par une trame acide, la cuvée Madame 2008 est une réussite exceptionnelle. Grande richesse, matière confite mais sans lourdeur, plénitude de saveurs, nervosité et précision en finale signent un très grand vin, qui se bonifiera au fil des décennies. »

Guide RVF 2013 : 17.5 /20

Afin de tirer la quintessence de ces grains nobles, Bruno Bilancini pratique des pressurages très lents et non automatisés, obligeant le vigneron à surveiller son pressoir 5 heures durant. Les jus clairs obtenus sont descendus par gravité en barriques (partiellement neuves) pour y rester environ trois ans. Rien que la fermentation alcoolique peut dépasser l'année pour atteindre les 12° obligatoires à Monbazillac.

L'assemblage de la cuvée correspond à peu près à l'encépagement du domaine de 7 ha : 50 % Sémillon 50 % Muscadelle.

What is an author wine?

This can be so diverse depending on the personality of their sire, that it is easier to define what it is not. An author wine is anything but a standard, stereotypical wine, made to please as many people as possible. It is therefore rarely produced in millions of copies, copying itself from vintage in vintage.

An author wine is therefore a wine that does not look like that of the neighbor. Which from year to year will evolve according to the vagaries of the weather and the mood of the author - the two that can be linked. Because the author does not rely on market studies to carry out his boat. He makes his wine as he feels, as he likes, as he can, sometimes ... and too bad if he does not please everyone.

This is why author wines are sometimes classified as "table wine" or "France wine". Because the winemaker did not plan the authorized grape variety*, makes the assembly or vinification recommended in the name **. He is often a bit rebellious, our author. But that is why we like it! ... That said, author's wines are not systematically marginal: they are present in most of the appellations, and can be part of the elite of these this***. Because they are not content to have personality: they are good, in addition! With in general aDegree of TorchabilityVery high: we never tire of it at the end of the first sip.

As author's wines are not chaptalized, levied, hacked ... They can have very different profiles depending on the vintage. It is up to us (resellers and consumers) to accept them as they are, and to remain faithful to the producers, because they need us to continue their activity.


* For example, theTouriga Nacionalin the Minervois, or theSyrahIn Forez ribs. They are crazy, these authors!

** Some winegrowers dare to produceSweety with Mourvèdre or oneNatural sparkling with Pineau d'Aunis

*** Like those of Jean-François Ganevat in the Jura or Zind-Humbercht in Alsace
