Our oenologists' opinion
Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.
Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.
Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.
Do you know ?
There are over 690 cooperative wineries and unions in France. Together, the 84000 winegrowers produce 39% of A.O.C wines (French appellation wines), 71% of Vins de Pays (local wines) and export over a third of their production abroad. Acting as a collective force, those cooperatives allow winegrowers to focus on their vineyards without directly having to take care of the winemaking process and the commercialization of their wines.
Domain and appellation
Gathered since 1979, the three wine producers of Plaisance, Aignan and Saint Mont gathered their skills, legacies, terroirs, and initials to form the Plaimont Producteur cooperative. The collective enterprise was joined 20 years later by the Crouseilles and Condom wine producers.
- Terroir: Plaimont Producteur owns 98% of the Saint Mont appellation. Spread across 3500 hectares at the crossing of Gascogne, Béarn, Pyrénées and Gers, the vineyards have petit courbu, mansengs, tannat, pinenc, arrufiac, colombard and cabernet sauvignon as main grape varieties.
- Viticulture: The viticulture results from a strict contract that is established between the winegrowers, technician and terroir.
