Château d’Aydie, Madiran, Origine 2017
GRAPES: Tannat, Cabernet Franc
TASTING NOTES: The first thing you may notice about this wine is its intense, deep ruby color. Composed of 70% Tannat and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, both grapes are known for their thick-skin, which is what imparts color into wine. Tannat is actually known as one of the “healthiest” wine grapes due to high levels of antioxidants, especially resveratrol, which also comes from its thick, juicy skin. Full and pleasant on the palate, this wine is bursting with flavors of black plum, black licorice, and dark chocolate. It’s seriously indulgent!

About the Producer
Since 1927, four generations of winegrowers have followed one another at Château Aydie. The family is constantly striving to perfect their wines, actively choosing more precise plots, seeking new winemaking strategies, and trying new and ever more demanding blends. Their goal? To make tannat current in its expression without denying any of its intrinsic qualities. La Review de Vin de France, the best French Wine Journal, says Pierre Laplace and his 4 children form one of the most dynamic and influential families in Madiran. This last decade has been decisive for the estate: reorganization of the vineyard and optimization of extracting and aging methods.
