Producteurs Plaimont (established 1979) is a forward-thinking co-op, actually a grouping of five co-ops, based in the town of St-Mont about 50 km north of Pau in SW France. This ultra-reliable winery, which has an admirable focus on polishing the finer characters of the region's local grapes, consistently produces wines of character and charm across a huge range of styles and prices.
Tasting Note: Pale, bright, lovely orange-pink. Red fruits and citrus on nose, lovely fruit and zip on palate - perfect summer quaffer. Feel free to add ice!
