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 Wine Cooperative 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

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.

Food Matches

This is a wine which best accompanies fish dishes. It is also a good match with intensely-flavoured Spanish or Lebanese dishes.
