Situated in the heart of South-West France, the Plaimont vineyards stretch from the foothills of the Pyrenees to the hills and valleys of Gascony covering a uniquely rich terroir. A thousand winegrowers defend the ideals of a cooperative and are committed to managing their vineyards with respect for both the environment and their own time-honoured traditions. With a combination of local grape varieties, knowledge and rigorous hard work, the members of Plaimont have succeeded in producing extremely high quality wines from the terroirs of Madiran, Pacherenc du Vic-Bilh, Saint Mont and Côtes de Gascogne
The different grape varieties are harvested at optimal maturity during the night in order to preserve their aromas and are then vinified separately. A two to eight-hour period of skin contact for the Colombard grapes only. Free-run wine is drained off with the help of gentle pressing in a pneumatic press with occasional reincorporation of the must to add fullness. Rigorous settling. Alcoholic fermentation takes place at temperatures maintained between18°C and 19°C which allow the aromatic potential of the Colombard grape variety full expression. Temperatures are maintained at 16°C and 17°C for the Ugni Blanc. No malolactic fermentation
