Madiran is an obscure appellation lying in the foothills of the Pyrenees in south west France. The red wines made from the equally obscure Tannat grape were recently given the oxygen of publicity by a wine-loving cardiovascular professor from St Bartholomew’s Hospital whose research showed that the unique tannic structure of Tannat breaks down cholesterol and helps explain why south west France boasts the lowest incidence of heart disease despite a high fat diet. A top Madiran such as Château d’Aydie from Domaine Laplace will develop well over 20 years.
