Terroir & grape varieties
The “Plénitude” Madiran comes from the Viella, Cannet and Maumusson-Laguian terroir in the Gers, whose clay gives the wine a powerful, structured character. The tannins in the wine are typical of this very complex terroir. Only 5 ha of vines are given over to this cuvée, and their grapes (Tannat, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc) are painstakingly selected and picked by hand.
This sunny-climate wine, aged in 225-litre barrels for 12 to 14 months, is a contemporary, high-calibre expression of all that the Tannat varietal can convey.
