Wine Description:
Domaine Labranche Laffont Madiran comes from vines averaging 40 years of age that produce naturally low yields and intensely flavored fruit. Harvest is manual and fermentation takes place using native yeast. Maturation takes place over 18 months in concrete vats to soften the characteristically muscular tannins coming from Tannat. Minimal sulfur additions are made to throughout the winemaking process. The resulting wine is known for its bold and robust character, with rich flavors of dark fruits, spices, and earthy undertones.
Pros:
  • Powerful and full-bodied with a deep color

Cons:
