Château d'Aydie (Famille Laplace)

Odé d'Aydie Madiran Tannat 2017

Such a good, well-behaved Tannat. Pure dark berry fruit, gravel, spice. Surprisingly soft and round in the mouth. Tannins so soft. Great value. — 11 days ago

Couldn’t agree more @Tom Casagrande
Great wine, great price.

Bodega Garzon

Reserva Maldonado Tannat 2019

For under $20 this is such a steal. Dark and inky, but a lot of vibrancy. Has a smoky vibe on the nose but is complimentary towards plums, blackberries, and vanilla. Smooth but with great structure. Features chocolate and plum and a lot of earthy leathery feels. Totally dig it. — 3 months ago

Château Montus

Cuvée Prestige Madiran Tannat 2009

Perfect. So smooth, so elegant, so rich. Nearly black. Leather, chocolate, blackberries. Woody nose accompanied by leather. Fourteen years old but no sign of vinegar or other faults and color changes. The tannins are perfectly smooth at this point leaving a chewy potent finish. Powerful yet not overwhelming red wine that went perfectly with my Trofie with short rib in Chianti sauce. If you can find it, buy it. — a month ago

Casual Encounters Syrah Blend 2017

Full bodied, flamboyant and very enjoyable. There’s a perfumed nose and a richness of flavours and an impressive silkiness and weight. Black cherry, marzipan, wet rock, sweet liquorice, potpourri, nutmeg. — 2 months ago

Château Bouscassé (Alain Brumont)

Madiran Menhir Tannat Blend 2006

50% Tannat, 50% Merlot blend. A lesser-known cuvée by Alain Brumont. The result is in the Bordeaux spirit. Black dress, ruby reflections still suggesting aging potential. After two hours of absolutely necessary aeration, the wine delivers notes of black fruits, blackberries, blackcurrants, plum. The breeding is elegant and melted with tannins between tobacco, chocolate, caramel, eucalyptus... the evolution notes are perfectly integrated into the bouquet. A wine with a classic style, of great drinkability.

Assemblage 50% Tannat, 50% Merlot pour cette cuvée moins connue de Alain Brumont. Le résultat est dans l’esprit Bordelais. Robe noire, reflets rubis suggérant encore du potentiel de garde. Après deux heures d’aération absolument nécessaire le vin se livre sur des notes de fruits noirs, mûres, cassis, prune. L’élevage est élégant et fondus aux tanins entre tabac, chocolat, caramel, eucalyptus.. les note d’évolution sont parfaitement intégrées au bouquet. Un vin au style classique, d’une grande buvabilité.
