Wine of Madiran appellation
Situated in the Hautes-Pyrénées, Gers and Pyrenées-Atlantiques départements, spanning two administrative regions (Aquitaine and Midi-Pyrénées), the Madiran appellation area merges with that of Pacherenc Vic Bihl and runs into that of the Béarn AOC. The Madiran AOC was obtained by decree of 10 July 1948 and concerns only the red wines produced from this terroir. The Madiran vineyards extend over around 1,400 hectares lying north of Pau. 

Within the appellation area, the clay and limestone soils are preferred for the red varieties used to produce the Madiran red wines. The predominantly clay and silica soils are suitable for the white varieties used for the dry or sweet Pacherenc wines. The Madiran character can be best appreciated in the wines from Château Montus, Château Bouscassé, Domaine Berthoumieu and Domaine Alain Brumont. 

The Tannat is the main grape variety used for the wine of Madiran. It shapes the character of this tannic red wine and gives it the backbone required of a wine for cellar-ageing. The rest of the plantings consist of Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, and to a much lesser extent, Fer-Servadou, one of the oldest grape varieties in the region, which has become a rarity today.
