Winemaker Notes

Very ripe, rich Madiran that takes no prisoners. This wine succeeds in obtaining more fruit than tannin! The color is nearly opaque — wine doesn't get much darker than this. It displays notes of black fruit (blackcurrant and blackberry) along with just a hint of red fruit. There is a cedar-like creaminess to the oak which is extremely well-integrated. Tannins pick up on the finish but, this is Madiran and that is to be expected. These tannins dissolve when the wine is matched with richly flavored meats like leg of lamb, duck, goose or game.

Wine Enthusiast
This is a big, dark wine. It is full of dense tannins and ripe black fruits. The tarry, leathery texture is developing well alongside the black-skinned plum fruits that are cut by intense acidity. Nothing is reticent about this powerful wine. It will be ready to drink from 2019. Editors' Choice.

Domaine Berthoumieu, France
Domaine Berthoumieu is owned by Didier Barre, who took over for his father Louis in the mid-1980s. Didier was one of many young winemakers at this time greatly inspired by Alain Brumont of Domaine Bouscasse/Chateau Montus fame. Brumont could be called the founder of modern Madiran.

Didier attended enology school in Bordeaux and immediately upon taking over the domaine, lowered the yields in the vineyard and began aging his wines with a judicious amount of oak. Domaine Berthoumieu has 24 hectares of vineyard. His vines include Tannat,Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Fer Servadou grapes.

Setting the standards for red wine production worldwide, France holds rank as the source of the world’s most popular red grape varieties. Famous for their elegance, grace and longevity, the red wines of France come in a variety of styles.

Burgundy claims some of the most desirable vineyard real estate on the planet and remains a source of the world’s most coveted Pinot noir. A powerhouse producer of red wines based on Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, Bordeaux sits on France’s western side, separated from the Atlantic Ocean by a coastal pine forest. The region’s mild, maritime climate and gravel-heavy soils are perfect for the production of highly structured, cellar-worthy red wines. In the south, the long and narrow Rhône River Valley produces full-bodied, flavorful reds. Syrah makes its home in the Northern Rhône where a continental climate and steep hillside vineyards create some of the best in the world. Southern Rhône’s Grenache-based blends easily charm most any wine enthusiast. For those after a more delicate red, the Loire Valley’s Cabernet Franc maintains a loyal line of followers.
