Le Faite Blanc AOC Saint Mont Producteurs Plaimont 2016

Off the beaten track, this generous wine displays rich tropical and apricot flavours, a light floral note and a pronounced mineral element, almost saline. This wine has a textured mouthfeel and a persistent refreshing finish, trademark of the Pyrenees

"Le Faite Blanc is one of Gascony's best kept secrets! Made from indigenous grape varieties Gros Manseng, Petit Manseng and Petit Courbu; this wine pays tribute to Gascony's wonderful winemaking heritage with its wooden label and wax seal."

“Gascony used to be regarded as foie gras and Armagnac country (not necessarily at the same time) until the Producers Plaimont co-operative came along and changed the image of the region’s dry reds and whites. Le Faîte is their top white blend, made from a trio of local grapes – Gros Manseng, Petit Manseng and Petit Courbu – and is a stunning cuvée, somewhere between a Spanish Albariño and a Greek Assyrtiko in style. Pithy, saline and very complex, with quince, apple and grapefruit flavours, mouth-watering acidity and the concentration to age brilliantly in bottle.”
