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.
