2016 Labranche Laffont Madiran 750ml


Don't be scared.  The region is known for (feared for?) the tannic Tannat variety, but producers such as this are wise to temper the effect via blending.  20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Cabernet Franc to the rescue!  This is food wine, and perhaps you have the time to make that cassoulet to go along?
