Great as an aperetif, or with roasted goat's cheese, or seared tuna salad.

Well-balanced, soft and rich on the palate, with notes of quince, pineapple and lemon followed by a fresh finish, with good length.

Systematic de-stalking of the grapes is followed by partial skin maceration. Gentle pneumatic pressing extracts the free-run wine. The wine then undergoes temperature-controlled alcoholic fermentation (16-18°C) in stainless-steel tanks to conserve maximum aromatic intensity. It is then aged on its fine lees in temperature stainless steel tanks for 4 to 5 months with regular stirring.
In 1979 the three wine cooperatives of Plaisance, Aignan and Saint-Mont in the Gers joined forces to set up a united group of cooperatives and vineyards which became “Plaimont Producteurs” in the Gers. In 1999, Plaimont Producteurs were joined by the cooperatives of Crouseilles and Condom. Situated in the heart of South-West France, Plaimont's vineyards stretch from the Pyrenean foothills to the undulating Gascony hillsides covering a uniquely rich terroir.
The Saint Mont appellation presents three complementary terroirs: Plaisance, Aignan and Saint Mont. Each of these terroirs demands rigour, vigilance, carefully controlled yields and, in view of their diversity and typicity, specific requirements. Every parcel of vines (about ½ hectare) is planted with a single grape variety and identified as a separate unity which is cultivated according to its grape variety, terroir, exposition and climate.
