Sales Information

A great wine from the South West of France in the little gem of an appellation known as St Mont. This wine is made for pleasure and is generous, well balanced with aromas of black fruits and mildly spicy notes. It is aged for 12 months on the lees in tank.

The Vineyard

Ever since the Middle Ages, the passion with which the Benedictine monks of Saint Mont Monastery patiently transformed grapes into wine has been handed down from generation to generation giving birth to a real and enduring love affair between man and the land.

 

For many years, until the arrival of André Dubosc, a local boy from a family of three generations of winemakers, the wine produced was destined for distillation and the production of Armagnac.

 

With a group of young winegrowers Dubosc set about waking up the appellation of Saint Mont, revitalising the sweet white wines of Pacherenc du Vic-Bilh and creating Vin de Pays dry whites (Côtes de Gascogne).

 

In 1979 the three wine cooperatives of Plaisance, Aignan and Saint-Mont in the Gers joined forces – and initials (PL for Plaisance, AI for Aignan and MONT for Saint-Mont) – to set up a united group of cooperatives and vineyards which became “Plaimont Producteurs” in the Gers.
