- Each grape variety is harvested at optimal maturity and vinified separately. Following a 24-hour period of pre-fermentation skin contact, extraction takes place with pump-overs and punching down of the cap. Alcoholic fermentation temperatures are closely controlled at 26°C. The total period of skin contact never exceeds 20 days. Malolactic fermentation is allowed to take place naturally. The wines are then blended in proportions favouring the expression of fruit.
- It is an ancient vineyard which was known for its wine as early as the 11th century during the era when the Abbey of Madiran was founded by Benedictine monks in 1030 and transformed thirty years later into a Priory. The golden age of Madiran was probably between the 16th and 18th centuries when François 1st referred to it “as a Seigneur's wine which ages extremely well” and Henry 4th served it to his most prestigious guests, be they French or foreign, in his chateau at Pau.
- The Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée of Madiran is situated in the foothills of the Pyrenean mountain range in Vic-Bilh (which means ‘the Old Country'), 40 km from Pau, in the medieval village of Madiran - from which the appellation takes its name. Relatively mild winters, hot, stormy summers and dry, sunny autumns are important factors in ensuring a good maturation.
