Plaimont Producteurs Madiran Réserve des Tuguets 2012


Sturdy stuff, perhaps not the perfect wine for this time of the year unless you’re in the southern hemisphere

Plaimont Producteurs Madiran Réserve des Tuguets 2012, South West France (£11.99 Tesco)
Smells soft, fruity and puddingy – think warm berries and cherries, with a hint of eggy sponge – and while the flavours are similar, they veer towards the baked, and there’s also a whack of smoky vanilla-scented oak which isn’t quite in balance with the rest of the wine. OK, and I’d probably have a second glass with some duck confit, but not fine, and misses out on the perfumed side of Tannat. B-
