35 Clos Basté, L’Esprit de Basté, Madiran, France 2009
18pts/20 (93/100pts)
Rising star Philippe Mur makes this entry-level wine (70% Tannat) for relatively early drinking. The bouquet has an explosion of summer fruits – particularly blueberries as well as hints of autumn foliage. Intense on entry, nice structure but easy to drink with soft tannins.
