2012 La Madeleine de Saint Mont, Plaimont

2012 La Madeleine de Saint Mont, Plaimont


Phylloxera swept through Europe in the mid- to late 19th century, and nowhere was spared, least of all this remote corner of south-west France, when during the 1870s, Europe’s vineyards were ravaged by this yellow, aphid-like pest, which effectively wiped them out. A block of vines, planted on phylloxera-resistant American root-stock in the years immediately following this devastation, survives to this day. It is called La Madeleine, and links that period of near-destitution for peasant growers to the well-being of today’s enlightened growers. This tiny vineyard, approached through, and guarded by a 14th century stone archway, is one of Europe’s few living reminders of those apocalyptic times. (When in Montpellier, one should always pay homage to the statue of Jules-Émile Planchon, the man credited with beating Phylloxera).
