Our oenologists' opinion

Fruity and well-rounded

Its light straw color introduces a nice open nose with wooded notes and vanilla, exotic fruits and mango aromas. The palate is balanced, net, fine, plain, round, mellow, vigorous and characterized. The lingering finish has hints of minerality and unctuousness.

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.

Style ? Dry wines are acidic, lively and fresh while sweet wines are soft and feel round in the mouth.

Do you know ?

The thiol also called “thioalcool” is a very fragile molecule present in the France South-west grape varieties. It gives the wine aromas of citrus and exotic fruits.

Domain and appellation

  • Plaimont Producteurs

    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.
