This wine is a deep, intense red. Elegant on the nose, with aromas of black fruits (blueberry and blackberry) dominating the hint of spice. A remarkable fullness on the palate, with layered tannins and roundness. The long finish has a delicate vanilla edge. A delightful wine, both powerful and elegant. It can easily be kept for 8 to 10 years.

    Classic Madiran - a personal favourite

    Posted by Matt Eglinton on 17 May 2020

    Lovely blackberry fruit across a palate that has great structure, balance and acidity. With each sip you can sense the tannins that have been tamed lurking in the background but they are transformed into a silky sinewy texture. That is a most enjoyable aspect to this powerful yet elegant classic wine. It goes so well with roast duck!


Winemaking

Hand-harvested early October with yields of around 45hl/ha. Long maceration (25 days). Extraction through délestages. Malolactic fermentation. Ageing in 400 litre barrels for 18 months.
