Tannat

Tannat

Makes darkly coloured wines with monstrous tannins but with underlying depth and complexity. Madiran is obviously where this grape shines. You can also find it in South America. Uruguay, Argentina and Chile are all places that producer high quality examples.

Madiran 

This shares the same footprint as white only Pacherenc region (see below). Madiran makes reds from Tannat, Cabs Sauvignon and Franc and local variety Fer Servadou. These are seriously tannic wines, easily outstripping all contenders for this title. The troublesome variety Tannat was the inspiration for developing the micro oxygenation technique which is used worldwide in wine production.
