Chateau Montus Madiran Rouge Cuvee Prestige 1999

MCF Rare Wine

Alain Brumont's Chateau Montus is SW France's most storied winery, and their Tannat-based Madiran reds will ably stand next to the great wines in the world.  The Cuvée Prestige is their top wine made of 100% Tannat, and released only after enough bottle-age for it to be ready to drink in the estate's eyes.  This 1999 is fantastic. The unique micro climate of Madiran made for a fabulous vintage.  Dark, rich, powerful, savory and intensely mineral, it's textbook Madiran and a beautiful example of the brilliance of Montus.
