Domaine Labranche Laffont Christine Dupuy MAGNUM
Christine Dupuy is in the head of Domaine Labranche Laffont (Madiran appellation) since 1993, when she completed her oenology studies. When she settled in the family estate, she perpetuated a tradition that goes back to the French Revolution … nothing but that! She became the youngest winemaker of the Madiran appellation, and decided to move the lines to the Labranche Laffont vineyard, shaking up the tradition.
The yields of such old vines are very low, but what a concentration! In the great years, the grapes are vinified separately into new ones of 500 liters, in whole grains, just scratched. Breeding is long, at least 36 months. The wine from this single vineyard has a deep, deep-rooted material, one of the last testimonies of the original flavor of tannat. The vintage Vieilles Vignes has an intense nose on black fruits with roasted and spicy notes. The palate is fleshy and dense. The whole is powerful, long and generous with tannins still present. We find in the final black fruits and spices. This vintage from the Labranche Laffont estate is to be kept for a minimum of ten years on powerful dishes or mature cheeses.
