Plaimont Les Vignes Retrouvees

A floral and fruity nose typical of this appellation with dominant notes of white peach, grapefruit, white pepper and freshly-picked mint. The attack in the mouth is full and well-balanced with crisp acidity suggestive of citrus zest. A long and refreshing finish with firm minerality which develops as the wine ages. This wine has been aged on its lees in order to give the wine more structure.

In 1050 the Abbey of Saint-Mont was founded by Benedictine monks. The monks, as always, were particularly interested in the area as it had already been colonised by the vine.
