The 2017 Red Madiran is a very beautiful expression of tannat, the king grape of the appellation. Of beautiful intensity, it carries beautiful aromas of black fruits, ink and graphite, well installed in a pure palate that is firm but with very fine tannins. Maturity, aromatic purity, density, richness: everything comes together perfectly to form this bottle already ready to be served with a duck breast or a beef cheek with carrots. Rated 16/20 by our Selection Committee.


Hand harvested, long maceration, punching of the cap at the beginning of fermentation, 18 months maturation in cement and stainless steel vats on fine lees.


Red, dark and shiny, of good intensity.


Delicious black fruit fragrances underlined by notes of graphite and ink.


Pure and firm , this wine with delicate tannins delivers a palate of a beautiful aromatic purity, that is both dense and rich.
