Producteurs Plaimont

Based in Gascony, cooperative Producteurs Plaimont is renowned for the quality and consistency of their wines.

About

Located in rural South West France, Gascony has a rich viticultural history, once boosted by the popularity of Armagnac. By the latter half of the 20th century, however, this production had dwindled, leaving villages and vineyards abandoned. This decline was reversed by André Dubosc, a local man determined to reinvigorate the area and restore its wine reputation. He brought together a group of like-minded winegrowers and in 1979 founded Producteurs Plaimont, a union of three cooperatives, Plaisance, Aignan and Saint-Mont. Their quality-focused approach melds respect for tradition and innovation: ancient grape varieties have been resurrected; old vineyards have been restored, new ones planted, and environmentally sustainable practices embraced, eschewing chemicals.

Modern winemaking techniques yield vivacious wines showcasing the delicious flavours and succulent acidities of Gascony’s characterful, local grapes. Our Own Label Corney & Barrow Blanc is a strong example of Plaimont’s delicious wines, a firm favourite with staff and customers alike! Gascony’s wine culture is now thriving - the countryside is carpeted with vines once more and Plaimont enjoys an international reputation for its high quality, characterful wines, present across four appellations.

The enduring appeal of France’s classic wine styles turns on the peculiarly French – and often controversial – concept of terroir, the belief in wine with a ‘sense of place’, with flavours and textures
