Alain Brumont has rehabilitated old terroirs left abandoned for nearly 50 years. Virgin terroirs free of fertilizer and chemical products too often used in winegrowing. Alain Brumont wished to start over with terroirs free of chemical substances.
Alain Brumont is always in search of new terroirs, a true grape variety tamer who has durably changed the aspect of wines in South-West France and has given back nobility to the Tannat, King of the Madiran grape varieties.
His passion for his region with its great terroirs and rediscovered grape varieties has made him one of the most famous winegrowers in France. He has been awarded numerous international prizes, which have placed him on the same level as the Bordeaux, Bourgogne and Côte Rôtie wines. His secret? Adapt each grape variety to the best terroirs. « I understand each terroir », he stipulates. And quite rightly so, as he is the only winegrower today to own 100% of the Madiran Grand Cru Appellation. This adaptation of the wine in function of each terroir together with his vinification talent have allowed him to acquire 4 different wine philosophies: Montus, Bouscassé, Torus and Gascogne.
