Visits to Château Bouscassé - 32400 Maumusson-Laguian


Brief presentation of the estate:


“My philosophy is primarily governed by a series of uncompromising choices, all leading to the unique style of Château Montus, Château Bouscassé or Torus. These now legendary wines are the result of hard work and the constant search for singularity where the smallest detail can become all-important”.


Alain Brumont is a man who belongs to the land, a generous winemaker who brought Madiran to the attention of the world. These wines are born from the passionate spirit of a proud Gascony native who, quite unusually, knows all the vine plants on his Montus and Bouscassé estates. The man is genuine, passionate, talkative, evoking his truanting childhood, his career and his work (a model of its kind), his Madiran and his fight to improve quality in wines from the south-west of France. Above all, he speaks of Tannat – the grape variety that has often been criticized in the past, but with which he has produced his finest wines.


Alain Brumont inherited Château Bouscassé vineyards from his father in 1979, which today covers 120 hectares. He purchased the badly rundown Château Montus in 1980. It was around this time that he understood that Tannat had the potential to produce exceptional wines and he began to develop the Brumont method.
Today, the rewards of his work are recognised by the entire wine profession, by journalists, oenologists and sommeliers. He is acknowledged as the icon of the south-west and among the top ten in the world. Alain Brumont is a visionary and twenty years ahead of his time.
