2014 Madiran, Vieilles Vignes (Labranche-Laffont, Domaine)

Domaine Labranche-Laffont, Madiran Vieilles Vignes, Southwest, France 2014

{organic} 100% Tannat; 55 TO 155 YEAR OLD VINES

DENSE VIOLET-BLACK, RUSTIC YET REFINED, RIPE AND VERY FIRM

Christine Dupuy coaxes monstrous flavors from every vine in her tiny 3 hectare parcel of 55 to 155 year old Tannat plantings. Her wine pours a powerful purple in the glass and boasts concentrated, bold black fruit. Aging in new French oak takes the richness to the next level, adding roasty aromas and powerful tannins. Christine has emerged as a shining star in Madiran by producing wines like this. Taste a piece of history in the making as this talented young woman rewrites the rules in Madiran. [Decant 1 hour before serving]

Serving Suggestion: A protein-seeking missile of a wine: bring on the richest, fullest-flavored beef and game you can prepare to help tame the beast within. Yum.
