Without doubt, the leading estate in Madiran for the last 20 years, owner, Alain Brumont has done an enormous amount for the appellation. He set the example by reducing yields, increasing significantly the density of vines per hectare, using only the best available grafts, harvesting perfectly ripe grapes and oak-ageing most of his wine.
Today, Brumont is still bursting with fresh ideas and is constantly working in improving his wines, from the very well-priced vins de Pays range to the magnificent La Tyre and this separate Chateau Bouscasse.
This wine is big, earthy wine with loads of ripe, intense fruit. Big structure, pronounced plum, blackberry and liquorice flavours. The oak is well integrated. The finish is very long and firm, with the ripe tannins melting in presence of food.
