Colombelle, Côtes de Gascogne PGI
Born in the mid-eighties, Colombelle has become THE emblematic wine of Côtes de Gascogne over the years. Recognised throughout the world for its inimitable aromatic and crisp style, Colombelle is a perfect reflection of this region of South West France, between the ocean and the mountains, a fine mixture of exuberance and freshness.
Le Faîte, Saint Mont AOC
Le Faîte, iconic cuvée of the Saint Mont appellation, is a blend selected every year, for each new vintage, by a jury of experts, journalists, œnologists and/or the world’s best sommeliers. Its wooden label pays tribute to the winegrowers of the past who kept their exceptional wines under the clay soil, identified by a tongue of wood.
Plénitude, Madiran AOC
Plénitude pays tribute to the vast terroirs of pebble-clay soils in the Gers part of the Madiran vineyard. Crafted from Tannat grape clusters harvested at full maturity, a youthful Plénitude expresses aromas of dark fruit and liquorice, and a rich and opulent mouthfeel. It will become erudite and more elegant after a few years.
La Saint Sylvestre, Pacherenc du Vic-Bilh AOC
The Saint Sylvestre wine is produced on the most beautiful parcels of the appellation. It embodies the mastery of Plaimont winegrowers and in the field of sweet wines and late harvests. The grapes are harvested on December 31st. On harvest day, the winegrowers organise an event in Viella, “Les Vendanges de la Saint Sylvestre”, in which the grapes are harvested at night under flaming torchlight.
Our winegrowers have always been highly active in promoting their region, and its traditions. Renowned for their friendliness, every year, they welcome tourists seeking authenticity to their vineyards during cultural events, heritage visits and festive tastings that are a reflection of Gascony’s taste for life.
