Production Detail Organic, in the early 2000s Chateau de Plaisance turned to a more environmentally friendly way of making wines


Fronton Rose Chateau Plaisance Marc Penaveyre, dry, crisp, fruity, joyful Organic rose. Made from mainly Negrette (the origin of which is the Mavro variety from Cyprus!) and some Gamay, this rose is a sheer delight with delicate red fruits, snappy acidity and a dry lingering finish. Fantastic from an ice bucket whilst out enjoying the sun and a barbecue. Viticulture is organic and wine maker Marc Penaveyre is getting more and more natural in his approch, doing less and less and revealing wines of delicious natural freshness and exuberance.

Marc Penavayre makes wines that are a sheer 'plaisir' to drink. The vines are planted on the highest terrace of the Tarn near the village of Vacquiers at an altitude of about 200m. The soil is composed of alluvial deposits, essentially pebbles, gravel and silt. These deposits provide a check to the vine’s vigour which is what is needed to produce quality grapes. They use organic viticulture and are a lovely example of this lesser known region.
