Just like Cahors, Madiran is one of the prestigious appellations in the South West and is famous for its full-bodied reds made from Tannat. This local grape gives structured and aromatic wines, and other grapes are often added to soften the wines. Although still an under-the-radar appellation, some Madiran such as "La Tyre" from Château Montus retail for over £100 per bottle! Château Saint Benazit is a small family vineyard, producing this approachable Madiran. It boasts a spicy backbone with black fruit, earthy aromas and its long, tannic finish will be a hit for connoisseurs of the region!
