50% TANNAT, 50% MERLOT
La Gascogne d'Alain Brumont Rouge
Gascony, lying between the Atlantic Ocean and the Pyrenees Mountains, is home to vineyards with real character, just like the men who cultivate them. Alain Brumont is the leader here. He was a pioneer in Madiran and Côtes de Gascogne wines, bringing them to rank with the world’s best. Alain Brumont has always been fascinated by the Gascony region which provides fruity and fresh wines thanks to its exceptional local terroirs. By blending both Tannat and Merlot, he made a balanced wine which reveals power and roundness.
An intensive wine, on red fruits and spices, with a smooth finish. The fruity flavors are strengthened on the palate, and added to soft tannins.
It can be served with food such as cooked pork meats, grilled red meats, roasted poultry, young cheeses.
