Our oenologists' opinion

Fruity and light

Its light straw color announces a nice fresh and exuberant nose of exotic fruits, passion, mango and citrus. The palate is balanced, straight and round with a crisp finish.

Features

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 ?

It’s in the US around a glass of “French Colombard” shared with the american producer Robert Mondavi that André Dubosc, gascon wine producer, understood the high potential of this French grape variety.

Domain and appellation

  • Plaimont Producteur

    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.

     

    • Vinification: The maceration and extraction are extremely slow. A patent created by the cooperative aimed at protecting the method implemented to highlight the thioalcool molecule, the one that  gives South-west wines their unique exotic fruits and citrus aromas.
