Le Prieur des Augustins Tursan 2012

Member Review by duncan 906:

I bought this bottle of wine on the website www,bidforwine.co.uk/auctions/show/110831 for £10.Tursan is an appellation created in 2011 although viticulture here goes back to at least the Romans for wines from the Adour valley west of the village of Aire-sur-Adour [located 25 miles north of the town of Pau in south-west France close to the Spanish border.] In spite of covering 41 communes,mostly in the Landes department,there are only 500 hectares under vine.Red wines [and 80% of production is red] are based on the tannant grape along with the two cabernets while the white wines are based on a local grape called baroque. Production is dominated by the Les Vignerons Landais co-operative which made my bottle.I started my bottler last night with my supper of chicken and I did enjoy it.There is certainly plenty of a blackcurrant,bramble and blueberry style fruit there but it was more than a little tannic.This could probably have done with a few years of bottle-age.It was a far better bottle of wine after it had stood open on the table for 24 hours
