Information


Description:


Madiran wines of the Midi-Pyrenees

 

Madiran wine is produced around the village of Madiran in the Hautes-Pyrenees department of the Midi-Pyrenees region.  Production is spread over three departments, Gers, Hautes-Pyrenees and Pyrenees-Atlantiques.

 

The Madiran AOC was created in 1948 and only red wine can be produced under the appellation with the production area now covering 1,300 hectares.

 

Madiran can be produced from a number of grape varieties, such as Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Fer Servadou, but Tannat must make between 40% and 60 % of the wine.

 

Madiran can be rough when young and traditionally requires several years of aging, but younger winemakers have started to experiment, producing wines that can be drunk without undergoing an extensive aging process.
