Situated in the heart of South-West France, the Plaimont vineyards stretch from the foothills of the Pyrenees to the hills and valleys of Gascony covering a uniquely rich terroir. A thousand winegrowers defend the ideals of a cooperative and are committed to managing their vineyards with respect for both the environment and their own time-honoured traditions. With a combination of local grape varieties, knowledge and rigorous hard work, the members of Plaimont have succeeded in producing extremely high quality wines from the terroirs of Madiran, Pacherenc du Vic-Bilh, Saint Mont and Côtes de Gascogne.
The dark purple colour of the wine immediately indicates its freshness. An open, elegant nose is reminiscent of blackcurrants and blackberries - aromas very typical of the Tannat grape variety when harvested just on the point of maturity. The palate is generous - typical of Madirans - but with a velvety robustness leaving plenty of room for rich and enticing aromas.
Although this cuvee can be drunk as a pre-dinner drink, its natural place remains at the table next to a large plate of scrumptious red meat. Thanks to its tannins, it also goes particularly well with cheese.
