Christine Cabri Le Faite Blanc Saint Mont AOC

This is an iconic wine. A mix of Gros Manseng, Petit Courbu and Petit Manseng, it is almost gold in colour. Crisp and fresh with lemon-zest and apple and oodles of minerality. And then, as it opens and warms, comes tropical ripe fruit and a floral rose nose, followed by salinity coupled with honey. Lees and oak aging contribute layers of complexity and a mighty finish. The blending is informed by an open tasting session of journalists and sommeliers. The “wooden” label is a tribute to the growers who kept their wine buried under soil, identified by a wooden marker. One of Gascony’s best kept secrets.

Plaimont Terroirs et Chateaux

As Caves Co-operatives come, they don’t come any better than Plaimont. It has the bigger picture of Saint Mont AOC and Gascony at heart, representing 800 growers and 10 chateaux including Chateau St. Go and Chateau Crouseilles. Everything they do, under the watchful eye of Head Winemaker Christine Cabri, they do well. They have revived rare and lost local grape varieties making the region one of discovery, again. The Cave produces a range of high quality whites and reds from the Saint Mont and Madiran AOCs. It also produces new and interesting IGP whites.
