Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer BERTHOUMIE
This seriously tasty, still youthful, truly terrific 2014 Madiran is really something you can lay away. Extremely deep intense purple colour. Intense, expansive, very attractive, warm, ripe, plum-cherry-cassis nose with some cedary-sandalwood notes. Dry, medium-full bodied, well structured, dense, harmonious, intense, ripe plum flavours with a lingering, high acid, somewhat cedary, complex finish. This blend of 90% Tannat and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon has 14% to 14.5% alcohol and 2 g/L residual sugar. It comes in a very heavy bottle with no lot number. Tasted twice - one bottle was labeled with 14% alcohol, the other with 14.5% alcohol. Has not appeared in Vintages before. CSPC 12979

TASTING NOTE: This is a bold, structured and firm wine, full of dark tannins and ripe fruit. It has power and a dark presence that comes from the dense texture and the dry core that is still a powerful element in the wine. That means that the wine needs to age further. Drink from 2021.
