Plaimont

Producteurs Plaimont are located at Saint-Mont, in the Gers, in Gascony....
Some decades ago, passionate and enthusiastic vignerons decided to work together to reconstruct an old vineyard. This vineyard was to produce quality wines in order to assure the future of the vine in Gascony. They enlisted the best 'terroirs' and plots ; they choose to use only traditional grape varieties from Gascony ; each year up to half of the young grapes are sacrificed so that the vine can feed the remaining grapes better. Grapes are harvested in the traditional method, manually, in order to keep only the ripest.

Winemaking

All Plaimont wines are made from traditional Gascony grapes :
- Tannat, Pinenc, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon for red and rosé wines ;
- Arrufiac, Petit Courbu, Petit and Gros Manseng, Colombard, Ugni-Blanc and Listan for white wines.

Some vignerons have century-old plots with grape varieties which are no longer in production. These gems are kept and studied: they include the varieties which are hoped will one day be among productive grape varieties, in order to always keep the authenticity and personality of the wines.

Cellars

Producteurs Plaimont has several air-conditioned ageing cellars, the most important one being found in an old ‘tuilerie’. It holds 3500 oak barrels and all barrels are less than three years old : this young age facilitates the best exchange between the tannins of the wood and those of the wine.

Saint Albert du Pacherenc du Vic Bilh 2001

Wonderfully rich and intense bouquet of exotic fruits and citrus with a hint of honey, vanilla and sweet almonds. Luscious rich sweet flavour (fruit salad) with zingy acidity on the farewell without the cloying of many sweet wines. A great vintage and good alternative to Sauternes. [read on...]
