On the road to Madiran
Lourdes > Madiran
This escapade takes you through the foothills of the Pyrenees into a confidential vineyard area shared between the Hautes Pyrenees, the Gers, and the Bearn - the Madiran. Historically the wines have an image of strength and character, but they can also attain the highest summits of finesse and elegance with the profound intensity of the Tannat grape. The master winemaker of the area, Alain Brumont, produces wines at his Chateau Montus which are classed amongst world's top twenty. Today other talented winemakers follow in his footsteps, their vineyards must also be visited and their wines tasted.
