Plaimont Producteurs

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

The golden colour and sparkling tints of this wine give us a clue as to its rich, complex nose of preserved fruit (lemon peel), peach jam and white pepper. A rich yet suave palate develops around an acidic framework – the telltale sign of the best Pacherencs.

Food Matches

A noble aromatic expression and a natural liveliness make this cuvee the perfect accompaniment to foie gras and blue cheeses such as Roquefort. A subtle, simple pairing can also be made with slightly sharp puddings such as lemon tart.
