Sales Information
Full and structured, this wine develops an aromatic complexity replete with black fruits (blackberry,
blackcurrant) and root liquorice underscored by subtle toasted notes. After 5 to 7 years aromas of
undergrowth, bitter chocolate and noble leather will develop around a very fresh pala

Grapes used are a mix of Tannat, Cabernet Sauvignon & Pinenc

This cuvee is produced from a careful selection of the three best terroirs of the appellation:
clay-limestone, variegated clay and fawn-coloured sand. The natural sweetness of the
fawn-coloured sand combined with the richness of the variegated clay (covered to varying degrees
with rolled pebbles) and the minerality of the clay-limestone subsoil gives this blend the unique
complexity of the Grands Vins de St Mont.
The Vineyard
In the heart of the unspoilt countryside of South-West France, the Saint Mont Appellation d’Origine
Controlée covers the slopes of the Pyrenean foothills to the west of the Gers départment. Local
grape varieties can fully express their authenticity and generosity on this exceptional terroir.

The monastery which dominates the village of Saint Mont testifies to the fact that Benedictine monks were already cultivating vines in this area as early as the 11th century.
The climate, with its cool damp spring weather and hot, dry Indian summers is conducive to local
grape varieties reaching full maturity.

Total surface area under cultivation: 1250 hectares.
