Producteurs Plaimont

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.

Tasting Notes

A fabulous aromatic wine, fresh on the nose with flavours of citrus fruit combined with blackcurrant leaf aromas and a great roundness.

Food Matches

Try with mussels with black beans, garlic chilli and ginger cooked in a little white wine.

Press Comments

Oz Clarke, 2019: "This must be one of the best value Sauvignons in Britain because it’s bursting with self-confident leafy lime-y, green apple-y freshness." Highly Commended: The Wine Merchant Top 100, 2019. Daily Express, Sisters are brewing it for themselves, March 2021:“A lovely dry white from winemaker Christine Cabri of Plaimont Producteurs, a cooperative in South-West France, this sauvignon blanc is crisp, zesty and fresh, bursting with flavours of lime, cut grass and just a hint of gooseberries. An absolute steal at the price.” Portsmouth News, May 2021, The Best of Sauvignon Blanc: "...a slightly more restrained wine from south-west France, a region until recently not readily associated with this grape. I think this is brilliant value for money and it worked beautifully with new-season asparagus."
