User Reviews for Gros Manseng-Sauvignon

Winemaker's Notes:

Awards Accolades: <strong>"These are unreal wines that are purely made, remarkably rich, and so complete and promising that they cannot be ignored."</strong> - <em>Robert Parker</em><br/><br/> <strong>"Alain Brumont is simply the best and most forward-thinking vintner in Madiran"</strong> <em>Wine Spectator</em><br/><br/> <strong>"Five Star Outstanding Estate"</strong> - <em>The New France</em><br/><br/> <strong>Alain Brumont is top 10 French</strong> for <em>Robert Parker</em> and <em>Steven Tanzer</em>.<br/><br/> About This Wine: <strong>Alain Brumont</strong> has always been fascinated by the Gascony region. For many years he has been working to select the best terroirs in this region. His skills and knowledge were articulated in the varietal selection of each parcel of land.<br/><br/> The association of Gros Manseng and Sauvignon gives a mouth filling and fresh wine.<br/><br/> About The Winery: In 1980, Alain Brumont acquired Château Montus. On this terroir made up of large round pebbles, situated in the finest Madiran Crus, he replanted the Tannat, which was venerated in the 18th Century, when no one really believed any longer in this grape variety considered too rustic because of its too great a yield, and which, once diluted, only produced astringency and bitterness.<br/><br/> In 1985, a great terroir was detected where the Tannat was very different from the others and was given the name Cuvée Prestige. This cuvée allowed Château Montus to elevate itself amongst the great wines. Montus Prestige, the first Madiran made from 100% Tannat, is entirely aged in new oak barrels. A revolution at the time, that all the famous wine tasters throughout the world nicknamed Petrus de Madiran.<br/><br/> Another revolution soon followed. Betting on the Petit Courbu, a little-known white grape variety from the Pacherenc du Vic Bilh Appellation, Alain Brumont surprised everyone with this dry white Montus, astonishing by its concentration its volume on the palate and its finesse comparable to a great white Hermitage.<br/><br/> About Alain Brumont: "To each vine, he gave a name" <em>Didier Dagueneau</em><br/><br/> A great tribute from a winegrower with exceptional standards of which Alain Brumont is very proud, as it illustrates the perfect timing with which Alain Brumont works his vineyard. Brumont vineyards are the expression of exceptional terroirs and very old outstanding local grape varieties.<br/><br/> Alain Brumont, extraordinary winegrower, has never ceased to develop these terroirs and the grape varieties of his region, for which he has been rewarded and has placed him in the same category as some of the greatest winegrowers in the world.<br/><br/> Today, thanks to this passionate and visionary man, creator of a unique style, his wines represent the generous Gascogne and the Pyrenees altogether imposing and delicate.<br/><br/> Today, nobody doubts his success, which marks the winegrower world.<br/><br/> Technical Analysis: <strong>REGION:</strong> Gascogne, France<br/><br/> <strong>ALCOHOL:</strong> 12.5%<br/><br/> <strong>TERROIR:</strong> Boulbène and chalky – clay soil.<br/><br/> <strong>GRAPE VARIETIES:</strong> 50% Gros Manseng, 50% Sauvignon<br/><br/> <strong>VINIFICATION:</strong> Skin contact; Fermentation at 14°; Maturing on the lees, in vat, with stirring of the lees.<br/><br/>
