Reviews of purchase Famille Laplace, "Aramis" Blanc Sec, Cotes de Gascogne IGP, 2018
The wine is dark ruby, almost black in color.
The taste of wine is balanced, round, juicy, smooth, with hints of chocolate, mocha, dark ripe fruit, well integrated acidity and firm tannins.
Extremely complex aroma of the wine pronounced notes of tar, tobacco, leather, plums, dried fruits, hints of blackcurrant and cherry liqueur, vanilla and spices.
The wine goes well with meat, stews, game, cheese, duck or goose, legumes.
Chateau d'Aydie, 2001 - very complex, balanced, juicy fruity wine that develops beautifully in the bottle, and even many years later is able to give real pleasure! Is home to the wine region of Madiran, located in the southwest of France, halfway between Toulouse and the Atlantic coast, approaching the foothills of the Pyrenees. At the heart of the Madiran wine - dark, tannic Tannat grapes. In the capable hands of this quality grapes turns into a delicious wine, otherwise the wine will be tough. Appellation laws insist on the content of at least 40-60% Tannat in blended wines, the rest of the blend can be Cabernet Sauvignon or other local grapes, softening the edges of the structure.

Chateau d'Aydi over 250 years belongs to the family of Laplace. But, despite the fact that the Chateau with 1759 produced a decent wine, real recognition came to him only in the middle of the XX century, when the leadership Château began Frederic Laplace. He and his son Pierre gave a lot of energy recovery vineyards and took part in the improvement of methods of winemaking. Frederic Laplace was recognized pioneer Madiran, he was the first wine region in 1948 was the bottled wines and sell them under its own name. Then from 1650 hectares of vineyards, which are currently owned by the Chateau, the harvest was going to only 50 ha! Frederick worked tirelessly to improve the quality of wines from the Tannat and global recognition madiranskih wines. Son of Frederick, Pierre Laplace, and his children - sons Jean-Luc Bernard and Francois, and daughter Marie, continued the work of his grandfather, rightly known as producers of some of the most concentrated and elegant wines of this remarkable region. Andrew Jefford, author of "The New France: A complete guide to contemporary French wines," says Chateau d'Aydi: "Everything is spotlessly clean, meticulously organized, deeply thoughtful, exhaustively exactly ... Full range of wines that express the essence of Madiran."
