Chateau Montus La Tyre
Francois' French Opinion: rom a beautifully exposed southwest facing vineyard with views of the Pyrenees, this is a serious and impressive wine. There is no holding back on the powerful structure and rich fruit or the dense texture and the layers of spice from the 16 months of wood aging. Balanced and generous, it will age for many years, and will best be drunk from 2022. Rich, deep wine with complexity and great concentration. Refined tannins and perfect balance. Elegant palate with a harmonious, fresh finish. Regularly ranked alongside the world's greatest wines, La Tyre is an exceptional Madiran.
Pair with: Wing rib, bigorre "black pork", lamb, truffles, rich cuisine, and oriental dishes
