Torus Madiran

on

MY RATING: 7

ORIGIN: France (Sud-Ouest, Madiran)

VARIETALS: Cabernet-Tannat

SAQ PRICE: $15.55

IN A NUTSHELL:  A poor man’s Madiran

There may be only a$5 difference price between this Madiran and Château Bouscassé’s Madiran, but the difference in quality is HUGE. This wine was fine – don’t get me wrong – but it lacked in finesse. It has a light, strawberry smell, and tastes of vanilla, strawberry, blackberry and leather. Unfortunately, the aftertaste is what really let it down: it was a bit sour, in my opinion. Save this one for a pizza night.
