||Tannat is a red-wine grape whose origins lie in the Basque country, on the border between France and Spain. Here, in the shadow of the Pyrenees Mountains, the terrain is rough and rugged, so it is only fitting that Tannat should create wines which are equally deep, dark, dry and rustic.
||The origin comes from the OC language, from tan, tanat, ie tannin (old tanné). It was mentioned for the first time in 1783, but everyone agrees that it was already present in 1030 in the vineyards of the abbey of Marcilhac-sur-Célé, from that grapes the monks got us wine to restore alcohol to pilgrims traveling to Santiago of Compostella and who had chosen the way of Aire-sur-l'Adur-Lescar.
|Characteristics of the wine obtained from this grape variety
||Consistent color, intense mountain, dark garnet with shimmering purple and purple reflections. Intensely scented with fruit syrup, it allows to recognize notes of blueberry, blackberry, dark-paste cherry; followed by a balanced fusion of clove, cinnamon and dried lavender flowers, dark chocolate flavored with mint, balsamic and humus bottoms. A truly surprising range of perfume.
