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.
Pale in colour with a greeny-grey hue. The nose is typical of the Appellation's floral and fruity intensity with dominant notes of white peach, grapefruit, white pepper and freshly-picked mint. The palate is full and well-balanced, with a ripe and crisp acidity. The long and refreshing finish is lengthened by just a hint of bitterness (a contribution from the Arrufiac grape which reinforces the citrus juice flavour). The wine has a firm minerality which develops as the wines ages.
This is a wine which best accompanies fish dishes. It is also a good match with intensely-flavoured Spanish or Lebanese dishes.
