Alain Brumont, Fabrice Dubosc
Steep slopes with big pebbles facing south/southwest. Warm and well-drained soil which improves the grape ripening. Brown and red clays.
3 to 6 weeks maceration depending on vintages. Fermentation at 28°C, malolactic fermentation in wooden tank.
Ageing in oak barrels (60 to 80% new wood) on fine lees for 12 to 14 months.
This is the latest release from this Madiran showpiece estate on steep vineyards surrounding a grand chateau. The wine is black, firm and full of tannins while allowing room for swathes of dark fruits and a bold structure. It is still in the aging process. Drink this blend of Tannat and Cabernet Sauvignon from 2024.
