Located between Béziers and Agde, in heart of the Languedoc, the vineyard Preignes and its medieval castle belongs to the same family of winemakers : The Vic Family. 5 generations have succeeded each other to produce renowned wines, typical by an unique basaltic terroir.
Vines are ploughed. We do not use weed killer Pruning is short to regulate the vine’s growth and its grapes yields The vines shoots are tied up along vires to be given the favourable angle to ripen the grapes.
The grapes are picked up by machines at the best maturity. The stalks are taken off to avoid vegetal tastes.
The whole grapes are placed in vats. The process of fermentation starts naturally. It starts with the juice that runs from burst grapes and also takes place into each grape. The skin and juice contact lasts no more than 8 hours, then we separate the juice. It allows a nice extraction of fruit flavours and colour.
At room temperature. 16-18 °C.
It is an ideal companion for games, roasts and strong and spicy courses.
Intense dark red coloured wine with notes that recall black and red fruits. It is fresh on the palate, full in body, and moderate in acidity, revealing an elegant finish with prolonged duration.
