Typical of the wine production of the Piedmont of the Pyrenees, the reputation of the appellation Pacherenc-du-Vic-Bilh is based on its exclusive production of sweet and syrupy white wines, as well as “dry” white wines. The vineyard shares its terroir with that of Madiran, known for its red wines with strong character. If for them Tannat has established itself as the Pyrenean grape of choice, the white wines of Pacherenc-du-Vic-Bilh stand out as ambassadors of other endemic grape varieties. Among these are the Small Courbu et Little Manseng or the Gros Manseng which retains strong kinship with these wild vines that are the paneling. Forming the appellation's main grape varieties, they are vinified at least as a duo and can be blended with two other secondary grape varieties: Sauvignon and Arrufiac. The vines extend here on slopes forming the buttress of the Pyrenees. Their plant and landscaped environment is dominated by oak forests and a few moors. On these country lands, time seems to stand still. Wine production has been going on there since the XNUMXth century.e century when the wines of Vic-Bilh - which means old country in Gascon - exported from Bayonne after being transported by the Adour. The term Pacherenc itself refers to the particular method of training in raised plan. Pacherenc-du-Vic-Bilh are remarkable white wines where the very expressive fruit subtly blends with the freshness typical of Piedmont grape varieties.
