WINEMAKER NOTES

Château Bouscassé is Alain Brumont’s family property in Maumusson-Laguian. Some of the vines that are used to make this 100% Tannat Madiran are more than one hundred-years-old, and are planted on superb terroirs. These consist of small plots of fine clay soil on the edge of Maumusson-Laguian’s old cliff that produce a distinguished, elegant, sleek wine, with a very good potential to age.

TASTING NOTES

Tannat gives fruity notes and soft aromas of cigar and mocha.

PAIRING SUGGESTIONS

Vieilles Vignes can be enjoyed with duck breast, ribs of beef, game, lamb, chocolate and red fruit cakes.
