An intriguing combination of grape varieties that breaks loads of rules, but no harm done here! Very juicy with plum and red fruit flavours. Soft tannins.

Wine Makers

Le Petit Pont Reserve Rouge. by Bruno and Jerome Vic

Standing over 6 foot tall and with perfect English, Jerome and Bruno Vic are one of our outstanding finds in the South of France. Jerome’s family have been making wine for 5 generations on their estate. They have managed to successfully marry tradition with developments in modern technology.

 

The estate is located close to Beziers, less than 15km from the Mediterranean. Positioned on the flat, with a mixture of red iron and sandy lime rich soil, the location is perfect for ripe fruit. All this is aided by the combination of the heat of south France and the cool prevaling winds from the sea. The breezes also bring with them the typical aromas of the garrigue - lavender, thyme and rosemary - which form part of the essence of these wines.

 

What makes Domaine Preignes le Vieux stand out is the persistent evolution; with 16 varieties grown on the Domaine they are constantly blending new and wonderful wines. Since 2006, the estate is certified 'Qualenvi', an initiative started by the federation of independent vignerons. It ensures traceability, protection of the environment and, in this case, delicious wine!

Press Reviews

"Very accomplished and savoury blend of locals Grenache and Cinsault with Bordeaux's Merlot. Herbal highlights from the local wild lavender, rosemary and thyme. Serve with a tomato and garlic stew of white beans and smoked bacon." Wine of the Week - Liam Campbell, The Irish Independent

Smooth & Glugable! , 15/01/2014
By Fruity Fan
Juicy, fruity and smooth. No complicated spicy or oaky edges.....ideal for sipping away without having food. Not overly high on the alcohol either.
