Alain Brumont has been selecting the best terroirs in the commune of Maumusson-Laguian since 1980. His terroir consists of a collection of plots of fine yellow and white variegated clays on a layer of fissured limestone. On the edges are two iron-rich clay terroirs with a concretion of iron and manganese oxide. This is where Madiran's former elegance, charm and voluptuousness, in all its 18th century glory, was derived from in the glory days of the 18th Century and still today.
This red is produced from the finest white clay terroirs, with small black and white pebbles on the surface. This gives the Tannat a direct yet fine structure with delicate aromas of subtle wood, cigar and mocha. It is the perfect accompaniment to two French favourites – duck breast and rib of beef. It also goes well with game, lamb, chocolate desserts and red fruit.
