Brumont Ch Bouscasse

Others were there before him, but it was Alain Brumont (Producer of the Year 2010 by Le Grand Guide des Vins de France 2010 – Bettane & Desseauve) who put Madiran on the wine map. He left the family domaine at Boucasse in 1980, dissatisfied by his father’s lack of ambition for quality, and set up on his own. In a mere 20 years, Brumont has succeeded by a combination of breathtaking chutzpah and brilliant winemaking in creating the largest fine wine domaine in the south-west and establishing without a doubt that Tannat is a first division quality grape variety.
