Berthoumieu MADIRAN CUVEE CHARLES DE BATZ 2014
On the nose red berries and spice, complemented by nuts and a hint of oak; on the palate notes of liquorice are detectable. A big brute of a wine, the mighty Tannat takes time to reveal its charms. The tannins can be tempered by double jugging, and a good hour in the Decanter. The results are marvellous.
