In tribute to the ancient local grape varieties, Les Vignes Retrouvées (“the rediscovered vines”) offers the purest expression of the Saint Mont terroir. Stubbornly preserved over generations and central to the future of the appellation, these ancestral varieties yield an elegant, authentic wine. Using local gros manseng, courbu and arrufiac grapes.
With its very light colour, straw-yellow with green highlights, the lively intensity of its fresh floral aromas, the subtle toasty note, and its ripe fullness in the mouth that remains fresh, fruity and digestible, this is one of the flagship Saint Mont whites. A food friendly wine.

“This is a lively and refreshing dry white wine using local gros manseng, courbu and arrufiac grapes to create a versatile wine that promises hints of grapefruit and a touch of honey. Very fruity and good with food. – Matt Nixson”

“It’s always tempting to stick with familiar names. However, it’s in the obscure places that you find bargains with exciting flavours. The zesty ripe orchard fruit intensity of Les Vignes Retrouvées comes from the local grape varieties gros manseng, petit courbu and arrufiac, grown in Saint-Mont, Gascony. It’s a great alternative to New Zealand sauvignon as an aperitif or with fish and seafood, barbecued vegetables or lightly-spiced chicken. – Joanna Simon”
