Chateau Montus Madiran 2012
|Region||France, South-West, Madiran|
"This Madiran is a showpiece estate on steep vineyards surrounding a grand chateau. A smooth, deep wine, subtle notes of red fruit coulis, fine tannins, and controlled power culminating in an elegant, persistent finish. Black, firm and full of tannins while allowing room for swathes of dark fruits and a bold structure."
Gascony, lying between the Atlantic Ocean and the Pyrenees Mountains, is home to vineyards with real character, just like the men who cultivate them. Alain Brumont is the leader here. He was a pioneer in Madiran and Côtes de Gascogne wines, bringing them to rank with the world'best. The Brumont wines benefit now from an international recognition and remain at a very good value for money.
