Traditional Local Grapes
SAINT MONT wines are made from traditional local varieties from the Pyrenean foothills, including Tannet, Pinenc, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon for the reds and rosés, and Arrufiac, Petit Courbu and Petit and Gros Manseng for the whites.
Some of the vines at SAINT MONT are over 150 years old; there are even a number of unknown varieties. This is a good example of how biodiversity can contribute to a wine’s unique character.
Vineyards Fashioned by Hand
Pruning, de-budding, de-leafing and green-harvesting are all part and parcel of a manually run vineyard. Every vine is tended to by hand, according to soil conditions, exposure and orientation, to get the very best from each plant.
Traditional, Pure, Full-bodied Wines
SAINT MONT wines are perfect for the discerning wine-drinker who likes a wine to be both traditional and full of flavour.
Reds are elegant, traditional and full-bodied, with a delightfully fresh edge. Whites are distinctive, crisp and well-balanced, with juicy citrus and yellow fruit flavours and an appealing vein of minerality.
Rosés are vibrant, soft and flavoursome, full of red fruit flavours. To discover more about PDO SAINT MONT wines visit the SAINT MONT website.
