Château Bouscassé, Madiran, Southwest France, 2015
(at 67 Pall Mall, 22 Sep 2020)
Drinking Window: 2020 - 2030
A blend of 60% Tannat with Cabernets Sauvignon and Franc in support, this 2015 vintage shows how approachable Madiran can be. Ripe and full-bodied, with dark, tarry, sweet black fruit. There's oak influence from the year on lees in barrel, but it's all in balance. Super drinkable.
