- The go-to grape in Uruguay and a darling of grape-nerds if it comes from Peru or Puglia, Tannat originally laid its humble roots down in the heart of Gascony, in Southwest France and because of its onetime overtly tannic nature, is the grape responsible for the development of the micro-oxygenation technique. Jean-Marc Laffitte's old-vine Madiran is deep, supple and darkly delicious.
