MADIRAN

DOMAINE PICHARD

DOMAINE PICHARDA winegrowing of 12 ha (11 in red and one in white Pacherenc), on a ground thin, silico-argillaceous, very stony, where the southern exposure full to mid-slope makes it possible to obtain wines of very great quality. The vines are planted at the top of a slope, and it is the only winegrowing of madirannais to have the vines of only one holding. The thirty years planted grape varieties of average age are composed of 50% Tannat and 50% Cabernet franc, and for Blanc, primarily of Petit Manseng. One matures wines of tradition here, proposing a range of vintages over 10 years and more, which is very rare.
Formidable Madiran red vintage Hugo Bio 2015, intense color, ample and fragrant (violet, blackberry and humus), a well fleshy wine, firm and persistent in mouth, very good evolution. Seductive Madiran red Bio 2016, fleshy, all in aromatic shades, of sustained colour, with complex nose where dominate black cherry and spices, a bold and full-bodied wine.
While seductive, the Pacherenc-du-Vic-Bilh Doux Bio 2015, obviously suave, where intermingle notes of almond, ripe fruit and heather, is superb, a wine that combines intensity and suppleness. The dry white Bio 2017, combines finesse and sweetness, with persistent notes of fresh almond and peach, and we recommend it, for example, on a pie with haddock and endives or avocados with shrimp.
