(2009 Vintage) There is no missing the power of this hugely concentrated wine. It comes from steep slopes above the Adour valley at the eastern end of the Madiran appellation. This rich wine, stlll young at five years, holds massive flavors of new wood and black fruit. Tannins march through showing no signs yet of softening as the superripe Tannat powers the wine forward.
