Vins AOC Pacherenc de Vic-Bilh | Plaimont, vignerons du Gers

Its production area is the same as for Madiran, facing the Pyrenees. Pacherenc du Vic-Bilh is the fruit of over-ripened, sugar-rich grapes (left to shrivel on the vine). The grapes are harvested manually, after three periods of successive sorting, from October to December.

Grape varieties

The Pacherenc du Vic-Bilh wines grape varieties require a very special soil, not to mention rigorous expertise that applies to no other grape varietal but these, endemic to the Pyrenean foothills.

The vineyard is situated on soils of clay-limestone and small gravel stones known as “Peyrusquets”. The altitude of the slopes and the proximity of the Pyrenees, and the hot days and cold nights, rather than causing noble rot, preserve the grapes so they ripen slowly, thereby concentrating the sugar and aromas and raising them to exceptional levels of liveliness and sweetness.

Seductive and aromatic

A unique terroir, that had all but disappeared by the early 1970s, but the winegrowers of Plaimont worked for many years to revive the tradition of fine sweet wines of the Pyrenean foothills. Its production area is the same as for Madiran, facing the Pyrenees. Pacherenc du Vic-Bilh is the fruit of over-ripened, sugar-rich grapes (left to shrivel on the vine). The grapes are harvested manually after successive sorting. After the first two harvests in late October and early November, the extra-ripened grapes of the finest cuvées are harvested in mid-November.

Côtes de Gascogne PGI

A wine-growing area for many years given over to producing Armagnac brandy, this land of plenty enjoyed a winemaking revival in the late 1970s, when André DUBOSC, founder of the PLAIMONT union, rediscovered the “French Colombard of the Gers”.
