  • Winemaker Notes Regularly ranked alongside the world's greatest wines, La Tyre is an exceptional Madiran. In 1990, in his constant search for the best terroirs, Alain Brumont noticed a large 10 hectare slope, completely uncultivated and located on the highest hill in the Madiran appellation. He felt sure that it had great potential and decided to purchase it and plant it with Tannat. La Tyre is simply the name of a district of the commune of Castelnau-Rivière-Basse. This exceptional wine comes from a selection of the best grapes from this plot, which today represents a great terroir. Enjoy with a wing rib, Bigorre "Black Pork", Barèges lamb, truffles, rich cuisine, oriental dishes, etc.
  • Tasting Notes Rich, deep wine with complexity and great concentration. Refined tannins and perfect balance. Elegant palate with a harmonious, fresh finish.

  • Vinification 3 to 6 weeks maceration (depending on the vintage). Fermentation at 28°C. Malolactic fermentation in new oak barrels. Ageing in barrels (100% new wood) on lees for 14 to 16 months.
