Background

History

The Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée of Madiran is situated in the foothills of the Pyrenean mountains in the medieval village of Madiran. It is an ancient vineyard which was known for its wine as early as the 11th century. The golden age of Madiran was probably between the 16th and 18th centuries when Henry 4th served it to his most prestigious guests, be they French or foreign, in his chateau at Pau.

Regional info

Nestled in the foothills of the Pyrenees, the Madiran appellation is famous for the richness of its red wines while, from the perspective of the authentic vineyards below, the view over the mountain peaks (the cimes) is simply breath-taking. Relatively mild winters, hot and stormy summers and dry, sunny autumns are important factors in ensuring a good maturation in this region. Tannat, a local grape variety, is the star of Madiran giving them their character and originality.
