Light, fresh with mouthwatering juicy red fruits. This cuvée, unfiltered, unfined and without added sulphites, is as natural as they come and may have a slight deposit in the bottle.
After destemming, the grapes are allowed to go through the process of carbonic maceration, with a natural fermentation using only native yeasts. Alcoholic and malolactic fermentation as well as 6 months of ageing is carried out in stainless steel tank. This natural process of winemaking results in a wine low in sulphites by the time it is bottled.
Simon of Domaine Capmartin has dusted off the historic traditions of Madiran and Pacherenc de Vic-Bil into a new, more progressive age. Certified organic for the best part of a decade, Simon is now striving further with his sights firmly set on Biodynamic certification. Natural, low intervention winemaking are the watchwords. No added sulphur, all wild ferments and aiming for light tannins makes for previously unknown modern, fresh and delicious Madiran Tannat.
