Winemaker Notes

Deep, intense ruby red. Fine, elegant and complex on the nose, with a blend of black fruit and coffee aromas. A very rich attack followed by a quite mature consistency and silky tannins. Fine, precise woody mouth aromas. An exceptional Madiran, powerful and complex, with unusual potential. This wine can very easily be kept for 7 to 10 years.

Wine Enthusiast
This celebration of Tannat is a balanced while severe and structured wine. Plenty of juicy fruit is ready to come out from behind the dry, tannic structure. There is power here as well in this wine that is firm and needs to age. Drink from 2019. Best Buy.

Chateau Aydie, Southwest, France
Image of winery
The Laplace family is recognized as the leading quality producers of Madiran today. They are the owners of Château d'Aydie and descendents of Frédéric Laplace, the founding father of Madiran. Frédéric was the first, pioneering winemaker to bottle and sell his Madiran wine under his own name when the appellation was first created in 1948. At the time, there were only 50 hectares of vineyard under production. This area has steadily increased to 1,650 total hectares which now produce Madiran wines.

Tannat is the grape of Madiran, and it is not an easy-going varietal by any stretch. It is has thick skins, is very late-ripening and very tannic. It is hand-harvested because machine harvesters cannot shake these stubborn grapes off the vine, and typically needs a good amount of time to mellow out.

Offering the perfect balance of quality and value, Southwest, France is a recognized appellation that encompasses all wine regions in France’s southwestern corner (except for Bordeaux and Cognac, which merit their very own). Bordeaux red varieties are responsible for most reds of the Southwest; Petit Manseng is the regions’s star autochthonous white variety.

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to create complex wines with many different layers of flavors and aromas, or to create more balanced wines. For example, a variety that is soft and full-bodied may be combined with one that is lighter with naturally high acidity. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
