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.
Deep and dark in colour. The nose is full of red fruit(Merlot) shot through with notes of black tea and the characteristic very spicy green pepper, brought to this first vintage by young Manseng Noir grapes. A good aromatic complexity. The freshness is instantly evident on a palate supple with silky tannins.
A superb accompaniment to beef carpaccio or a fresh duck breast salad.
