Free In-store tasting, 5pm – 6pm at Elie Wine Co!
Join us and Vincent Thebaud, Ambassador for the Brumont Family of wines, on Monday, June 30, in the store for a sampling of wines ranging from everyday whites to cellar-worthy reds.
Alain Brumont brought the South West France appellation of Madiran to the attention of the world. He always believed that the tannic and black-skinned Tannat grape variety indigenous to the region had the potential to produce exceptional wines and in 1980 he purchased the badly rundown Château Montus. For over three decades now, his tireless efforts, genuine passion (some call it obsession), and most of all, the quality of his wines, have made him an icon of the South West.
Tannat grown on the pebbly clay of Brumont’s painstakingly selected plots in Madiran produces the least well-known of France’s great red wines. It’s dense, dark, and loaded with red and black fruits. Aromatically complex with flowers, graphite, fruits and earth above a richly textured palate and a finish you can cut with a knife. These are wines that will age gracefully for decades. Think classed-growth Bordeaux at a fraction of the price. Pair them with grilled red meat, duck confit, cassoulet, chocolate desserts and even cigars.
