About the wine
The Romans already cultivated wine in Madiran in southwestern France; Benedictine monks from Bordeaux brought the small-berry tannat grape with them in the 11th century. Today, the extremely unconventional winemaker Alain Brumont mainly grows this ancient autochthonous grape variety on 180 hectares. In the best plots of the terroir, in the Montus with its stony, steep southern slopes, in the boucassé plateaus with ironstone and manganese soils and in Gascony with its limestone subsoil. Brumont has managed to tame tannat, which is highly astringent due to its high tannin content, and processes it in new barriques into socially acceptable, discreet and extremely long-lasting wines with strong fruit.
