I bought this bottle of wine for eight pounds when I visited the 2014 London France Show where I met the Domaine owner. The Madiran AOC was created in 1948,although wine making in the area goes back to at least medieval times, for red wines [white wines from the area come under the Pacherenc AOC ] produced around the village of that name about 20 miles NE of the town of Pau and 50 miles north of the Spanish border. It is based on the tannat grape,a local grape with a reputation for being extremely tannic and needing a lot of aging but one which is particularly good at reducing blood pressure and cholesterol. This was the subject of a study by Prof Roger Cordier in his book 'The Wine Diet' in 2006.Philippe Lanux had a copy of this on his stand at the show. He is a third generation winemaker who makes several wines on his 10 hectare domaine including several Madirans.He did tell me that with modern winemaking techniques a Madiran was not quite as tannic as previously. The 'Oihana' cuvee is 95% tannat and 5% cabernet sauvignon and spends time in oak barrels. I started my bottle last night with my supper of pork chop and mushrooms and I have to say that I enjoyed it. It was not over tannic at all in spite of being fairly young.I would describe it as being very fruity [think cherries ] with a slight spicy aftertaste.I thought it a nice bottle and I am not the only one who thinks so because in 2012 it got a gold medal at the Concours des Feminalises Beaune wine competition
