Six Wine Vertical Tasting of Château Montus La Tyre – The Premier Wine from Madiran

Please join us in the store on Monday, September 8, 5:30-7:30pm, for a vertical tasting of Château Montus La Tyre. We’ll be sampling the 2001, 2003, 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009 vintages of this leading wine of the Madiran AOC. Vincent Thebaud, Ambassador for the Brumont family of wines, will be on hand to offer his intimate knowledge of this single vineyard gem made by perfectionist Alain Brumont, who is considered one of the best winemakers in the world, and the man who almost single-handedly put Madiran on the map.

Released only in the very best vintages, La Tyre hails from an exceptionally steep vineyard, the highest south facing site on the estate. The slope receives extended sunshine and gentle winds from the west. 100% Tannat from extremely low yields aged in 100% new oak barrels for 16 months produces a wine of remarkable vigor and ability to improve in a cellar. This is a wine that rivals First Growth Bordeaux but at a fraction of the price.

We’ll be offering special pricing on these wines during the tasting. Please RSVP at (248) 398-0030 or email if you plan to attend.
