For more than 30 years, the winegrower has cultivated the art of nuance on his different plots to create exceptional wines. Cited by the greatest names in the most prestigious specialist magazines, Alain's wines stand out from the crowd and offer a complexity that intensifies with the ageing process, and in the middle of his host lands, Madiran and Gascony, the winegrower develops more than just a commercial brand, he creates a concept. The winegrower's mission: to sublimate the gastronomic products of his region through his vintages.
At the beginning of the 1980s, Alain Brumont took over the management of the estate in which he had his first steps. Château Bouscassé is his first work: his childhood inspirations led him to acquire many plots, going from 17 hectares in 1980 to more than 120 hectares today. The 6 clay-limestone terroirs that make up the vineyard became the winegrower's playground and made him famous, and when he took over the family estate, the winegrower bought Château Montus, which was then completely in ruins. Stone by stone, Alain and his team are restoring the estate and its buildings. On the terroir of this property, he sees the potential to work with wines that are well kept. It is with this project that he aims to restore Tannat's reputation as an innovation centre in the South-West region, Alain is the first to practice late harvesting and produce his first wines in a sweet way. In the early 2000s, he created the "Coffre-fort du Tannat", the first logistics and storage platform that will allow him to store more than 4 million bottles while waiting for their peak. At Brumont, we do not skimp on the means when it comes to keeping the wine.
At Alain Brumont, Tannat is the king of grape varieties! The winegrower has brought this grape variety back to the forefront and remembers the first vintage of Château Montus 1982 with its innovative blend of 80% tannat and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon. He continued by creating the first 100% tannat cuvée in the Madiran appellation.
