Episode 2: Tannat in Madiran in the Southwest

Today Pierre Gouttenoire, French winemaker and wine lover, takes you to the region of Madiran in the Southwest of France to discover the super-tannic Tannat grape variety.

Tannat is a grape variety that you may have heard of before, especially from South America (Uruguay, Argentina). Today we discover its place of origin in Gascony, and more specifically in the Madiran AOC region in the Southwest of France. The grape got its name from its auspicious tannins, today tempered by skilful winemakers…learn how in this 3-minute “Gone with the Grape…” video here.

I call myself Rebecca Wine on social media mainly because my name is so long, and wine synthesizes who I am. Since the late 90'ies, my world has revolved around wine in every moment. From what I do for a living to who I ended up marrying. From the outside, I bet it seems a little boring to have just one obsession, but it's so strong that there's no room for anything else (except of course my babies).
