Chateau Bouscasse Madiran
South West France
Min. Quantity: 3
The Chateau Boucasse Madiran is a very perfumed and refined expression of Madiran, offering more body and depth than many Bordeaux wines, at prices that reach well above the modest price for this wine. Fragrant with blackcurrant, plum and spice. Wonderfully fresh on the palate with remarkably refined tannins. The appellations of Madiran and Pacherenc du Vic-Bihl co-exist in the alluvial foothills of the Pyrenees and are located 160 kms almost directly south of Bordeaux. Madiran is the appellation for red wines with the main red wine grape variety being Tannat which is often blended with a little Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc or Fer-Servadou. Tannat retains very good natural acidity and produces very deep and rich wines with remarkable structure and in skilled hands it reveals wines of amazing depth, complexity and concentration of flavour which with age become supple with round textures and fine tannins. These wines can age superbly and they are perfect with beef casserole or grilled rib steak.
Made from 60% Tannat, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Cabernet Franc yielding 45 hl/ha. Malolactic fermentation is done in barrels and the wine is bottled without filtration.
Château Bouscassé has belonged to the Brumont family for several generations. The property includes 50 hectares of superb clay-limestone terroir along the cliff in the commune of Maumusson-Laguian. This terroir is also somewhat humorously known as the Pied de Côte de Saint Emilion ("The foot of the Saint Emilion Slope"), because the Tannat that grows there produces a wine that has similar characteristics to some of the great wines of Bordeaux's right bank, in that they possess a rigorous style, a refined structure and a substantial potential to age.
About South West France
The South West wine region, in France, includes several appellations and sub appellations such as Cahors, Cotes de Gasgogne and Jurancon. Although the South West of France is south of Bordeaux, most of the grape varieties in this region are not grown in Bordeaux and the style of the wine produced differs significantly. The main wines produced are Cahors (mostly made from Malbec grapes), Madiran (made from Tannat grapes) and Jurancon, a dry or sweet, aromatic white wine that has high acidity (made from the Petit Manseng grapes).
