Traditionally drunk by the pilgrims on the Santiago de Compostela route, Madiran offers a magnificent expression of the Tannat grape. Recently praised for its anti-oxidant properties by the British magazine "Nature", this Pyrenean wine never fails to charm. And with good reason, because if one has patience a seductive sensuality hides beneath its youthful virility. Owned by Alain Brumont, who also manages Château Montus, Bouscassé is one of the big names in Madiran. Alain Brumont left the family-owned Château Boucassé in 1979 and purchased Château Montus. He completely restructured the vineyard (new rootstock, selection of new vines etc.) and took his inspiration from the Bordeaux model of ageing wines in new oak barrels. In 1982, he made his first wine from three-year-old vines. This success marked the beginning of Madiran's international fame. A few years later he took over the management of the family property, Château Bouscassé. The wines from both properties are vinified at Château Montus. The Vieilles Vignes (old vines) cuvée is Bouscassé's grand vin wine for laying down; it is aged for 14 to 16 months in oak barrels, and then bottled without fining or filtering.*The above information describes the wine and is not vintage specific.
