【新品上市 – 法國的隱世瑰寶 : Plaimont 獨特佳釀 】
Plaimont 普萊蒙葡萄酒集團公司來自法國的西南產區 Sud-Ouest，位於波爾多以南，該產區由多個獨立的小型產區集結而成，雖然釀酒歷史與工藝技術與波爾多相近，長久以來卻因波爾多的盛名而被忽視，但由於該產區原生葡萄品種眾多，產區微型氣候、風土條件的差異，造就了此產區酒款的獨特口感與多樣性，讓此沉寂已久的隱世瑰寶近來在國際市場上逐漸嶄露頭角！
而Plaimont集團正是將這些珍寶發揚光大的功臣之一，自1979年正式成立以來，延攬了庇里牛斯山、Gascogne區為主的千家葡萄農，如今葡萄園遍及聖蒙法定產區(Saint Mont AOC)及加斯科涅區(Cotes de Gascogne)等，採用引以為傲的原生品種如塔那(Tannat)、皮南(Pinenc)等釀製成一瓶瓶獨具特色的優質酒款熱銷全球！
