2013 Chateau Bouscasse Madiran

Madiran, France

An exquisite Tannat blend from a high profile winemaker in Madiran.




About the Wine

Tannat is a pretty full-throttle kind of grape, and the wines resulting from this variety are definitely not for the faint hearted.

That is, unless your Tannat is coming from a master of the grape - like Alain Brumont. This wine sees Tannat blended with both Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, keeping the body and depth these varieties are known for, but offering it in a refined and elegant package.

This is a nice introduction to the Tannat world if you haven't dabbled here before.

About Chateau Bouscasse

The appellation of Madiran, in the foothills of the Pyrenees and south of Bordeaux, is home to Chateau Bouscasse.

Alain Brumont, the proprietor and winemaker of the estate, is one who arguably put Madiran on the map in terms of wine. At odds with his fathers approach to winemaking at their family domaine, in 1980 he decided to leave and set up his own.

It's a move that has truly paid off - focussing on quality, Brumont makes delicious wines that express the terroir of Madiran and celebrate its hero red grape, Tannat.

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. Everyday low & consistent pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you.
