Though it is now associated primarily with Uruguay, Tannat is another French expat, having been cultivated in the Madiran region for centuries. As the name implies, Tannat is well known for producing, well, really tannic wine. In Uruguay, the wines tend to be a bit more forgiving, but there is no escaping the grape's innate structure, except through time in the cellar.
