So, I picked up some 2019 Producteurs Plaimont Saint-Mont Les Cépages Préservé at the supermarket, which appeared to have the same blend as the rather fantastic Producteurs Plaimont Saint-Mont Blanc Les Vignes Retrouvées. A blend of Gros Manseng, Petit Corbu and Arrufiac. I was wondering if it is the same wine, but under screw cap and with a slightly different name.
I’m still unsure, after drinking. There are both similarities and differences. This may be bottle variation, vintage variation, or more probably, memory variation, but it could also be because they are different wines. Possibly that the Vignes Retrouvées is the better cuvee, made from older vines or the better pick of the grapes. This Cépages Préservé was good - the same pineapple and pink grapefruit refreshment as the other, but it just seemed a bit tamer and calmer.
I seem to recall that the Vignes Retrouvées was a bit shocking, like being slapped around the tastebuds with a pineapple, then having a pink grapefruit shoved in your mouth, in a really, really good way. This was more like being tickled by a fruitbowl.
