Chateau Bouscasse Madiran 'Alain Brumont', 2016
Alain Brumont is the king of the Tannat grape. A beautiful vintage from this remarkable Chateau. Big, intense and complex nose ending with hints of fruit jam, spices and even cocoa! Thick and fruity in the mouth with well developed tannins and a very long finish. His Chateau Montus and Bouscasse are wines which are compared to the top 1st Growths at blind tastings.
Chateau Bouscasse is one of a number of properties owned by Madiran's Alain Brumont, the most significant other being Chateau Montus. Brumont is a blend of the conventional and the innovative, a sort of unification of the Rothschilds and Didier Dagueneau. His inspiration for his wines was Bordeaux; he returned from that more northerly region to Madiran in 1979, with a new determination to make high quality wines, oak influenced, with the necessary structure for the cellar.
